Happy New Year! Kicking off 2023, we have a special Empowerment issue, celebrating everyone in Nottingham who's unapologetically themselves. This includes: trap metal artists ALT BLK ERA; Brown Gal Can't Swim host Summaya Mughal; artist Richard Hyde; cult cinema royalty Fortune & Glory Film Club; publishing legends Dizzy Ink; new indie-rock trio Girlband and so many more. As well as this, we take a trip to Bridlesmith Walk, swing by The Open Kitchen, pop along to Lakeside Arts, and look back at the life of Florence Paton. We hope you enjoy all that good stuff, as well as this mind-blowing cover from Iulia Matei - and we hope the next 12 months are good ones!
We have a favour to ask
LeftLion is Nottingham’s meeting point for information about what’s going on in our city, from the established organisations to the grassroots. We want to keep what we do free to all to access, but increasingly we are relying on revenue from our readers to continue. Can you spare a few quid each month to support us?
