The Thompson Brothers on Glastonbury

8 May 17 interview: Jared Wilson

Nottingham's most opinionated greengrocers on...

Music Festivals
We’d be up for going if we could camp in a nice camper van. All that mud and then you clamber into a tent and get it all over where you sleep. Awful. There’s a man who comes into the shop who goes to Glastonbury every year, but he never sees anything on the main stage, he just hangs around all the odd bits. I’m sure that could be interesting, but it costs an arm and a leg to do. £250 is a week’s wages for a lot of people.

June Election
God knows why she’s called it, she had another three years in the bag. She’s absolutely demented. I wish she’d just get on with it and do her job. How much does it cost to have an election? It must be millions? Did she just find a few spare millions lying around and wonder what to do with it?

Star Wars: The Last Jedi
We can’t stand Star Wars. That and Star Trek are both pointless. It’s alright if you’re a child, but there’s loads of grown-ups going bonkers about it. What a load of nonsense. We watched Carry On Up The Khyber, at the weekend, which I can tell you is a far superior film in every way.

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?
