The Lemon Tree began life as St Katherine's Club, built in the 1930s by the Young Woman's Christian Organisation as an activity centre to keep women off the streets of Aberdeen. The decision was taken by Aberdeen City Council at the start of the 1990s to create a permanent home for the burgeoning audience attending the city's rock, theatre and comedy Alternative Festival which is held annually.
