Wapping: How Tower Bridge Studios and The Nest are looking to the future
Cherryduck in Sampson Street is set to return to its original name as co-working space seeks clients

All businesses evolve and change as the market moves and demand shifts.

So wanderers through Wapping may notice over the coming weeks that Cherryduck Studios in Sampson Street has returned to its original name.

“It was a fun name, but ‘Tower Bridge Studios’ says where we are and what we are,” said co-founder James Vellacott. “It’s time for a change.”

The move is very much a return to focusing on the company’s core operation – hiring out five studio spaces and a plethora of equipment for photographic and video shoots.

“We’ve seen a big push now for higher end shoots coming back to the studio,” said James.

"During Covid people were using their mobile phones for user generated content and the apps like TikTok and Instagram are great for that.

But bigger organisations are back using the studios for press days, shoots, photography and video.

This week we’ve had two studios hired for a rugby team with a photographer and camera crew on site.

We’ve also had a live streaming company that likes to broadcast to its clients.

Then a national newspaper has taken one of our studios full time, as of next year.

They shoot a lot of fashion for a weekly magazine with lots of celebrities and they’ve moved here because of our video capability.

They want to create in-house content but didn’t have the set up that we do and we have all the equipment they need, ready to hire off the shelf.

We’re seeing the studios really pick up which is brilliant as 2023 has been tough."

Five spaces available at Tower Bridge Studios

“The writers’ strike in the US has meant that places like Pinewood and Shepperton, which would normally be producing film and television, were empty – so commercial clients could hire them at a much reduced rate.

This may have been an urban myth, but the lull has certainly picked up now and we’re busy up until Christmas.

We generally run at around 65% or 70% occupancy although clients typically want to shoot on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays.

Although are in central London, we have parking right outside so the convenience factor is there.
It’s even possible to drive vehicles into two of the studios.

We’ve tightened things up here and we’re confident we’re ready for whatever 2024 brings us.”

The business was set up in 2008 by husband and wife team James and Michelle, who own the studio spaces they rent out together.

In 2016, the pair invested further in Wapping, buying a neighbouring property and converting it into shared office space and launching it as The Nest in 2018.
