“Very sad to report that Julia Craik, our lovely Managing Director at The Premises Studios, passed away in hospital yesterday morning,” wrote the The Premises in a statement.
“The immediate cause was heart failure following complications from what seems to have been a severe bout of Covid-19.
“Her partner Richard was able to be with her when she died and is of course very distraught.
“We spoke to her last week and although she was obviously in a lot of pain, she and Richard were very hopeful that the worst was over. We are all in shock.
