We saw it on the news. I bet it looked amazing if you were in America. There’s a couple who live up the road and they travel all the way around the world following eclipses around. It’s bonkers, but they like it. The Americans dragged Bonnie Tyler out to celebrate, but we all know that It’s a Heartache was a far better song.

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?
