Pick Of The Week (16)

Where: Nonsuch Studios
When: Saturday 15 July, 7:30pm
How much: £12

A bin man swaps steel-toed boots for stilettos to chase his dream of becoming a drag queen. This raucous one-person comedy play combines monologue, song and (of course) drag in a love letter to hard-working Northerners and gender euphoria, based on writer Joe Leather's real-life experiences working as a refuse loader through lockdown.

Where: Bunkers Hill Hockley
When: Saturday 15 July, 7:30pm
How much: Free

Made up of members of Sons of Itto and Office Goth, Korean Street Toast are playing their highly anticipated debut performance at Bunkers Hill on Saturday. Expect 90s grunge/Britpop vibes with witty lyrics and a touch of soaring stadium-esque guitar. You can check their music out beforehand on Spotify, including their most recent single Mad Love.

Pick Of The Week (9)

Beeston Skate Coaching Programme
Where: Beeston Recreation Ground

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?
