Clockwork Studios was established by Noel and Margy Perkins in 1985 with the art community in mind. The building accommodates a range of independent artists and its doors open to the public for appointments, workshops and biannual open days
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’.
