Clockwork Studios was established in 1985 in South London by Noel & Margy Perkins in an old clock factory with the artistic community in mind. It houses quality diverse art businesses ranging from ceramics to stained glass.

At the turn of the 20th century 'The Fun Factory' as it was then known, was home to
Fred Karno's music hall performers and associated business. Two of his most notable performers, Charlie Chaplin and Stan Laurel, passed through these doors.

This year, The Music Hall Guild of Great Britain and America has fixed a commemorative blue plaque to honour the comedy impresario Fred Karno and the former 'Fun Factory'.

I am lured to the eclectic craft at Clockwork Studios by Victoria Richards' sumptuous ties - they represent the backbone to what little reputation I enjoy on Channel 4 News. But there are so many other treasures here too. Stuck for a hat, a pot, a thought, a fabric - look no further!" Jon Snow
