Jared, Alan and Tim set up the LeftLion website back in 2003 to shout about Notts culture, and ended up publishing their first print magazine, with Shane Meadows on the cover, in 2004. Over the years loads of creative folk have been decking pages out with the diverse voices of the city.
2013 saw Ali Emm become Editor and a small team move into Hockley offices. In 2017, the reins were handed over to Bridie Squires, and then to Ashley Carter in 2019. These days, we kick out 12,000 copies every month. The magazine and website are chocka with the most proper of stuff, thanks to the support of umpteen contributors doing it for the love.
We've got everything from comic con vlogs, to the history of Watson Fothergill, interviews with buskers, gig reviews, skate photography, plus our events listings section is the most comprehensive bogger going. If it's Notts, we're on it. You can access the whole print magazine archive online, and there's a fair whack of extra gear everywhere else on the site.
Get stuck in, duck.
