“We hope that we’ll see the next Mark Zuckerberg or Guy Ritchie building their companies from The Nest. With the surge in demand for digital content and London’s wealth of young creative talent and the ever-growing need for collaboration between creative sectors, we feel The Nest will prove to be a popular high-quality workspace hub just around the corner from Shoreditch”

— James Vellacott, CEO of Cherryduck Studios.

The expansion sees Cherryduck Studios established as one of central London’s biggest studio facilities and has been developed in response to a surge in demand for affordable creative and production services in digital video.

Cherryduck Studios – formerly known as Tower Bridge Studios – was established when husband and wife team Michelle Grant and James Vellacott, both formerly in the newspaper industry, saw the opportunity that digital video, social media and live streaming technology presented producers, brands and businesses of all types.
