The Thompson Brothers on the Panto, Gentrification of Sherwood and Notts County Twittergate

4 February 19 words: LeftLion

Nottingham's most opinionated grocers on...

We went to see both pantos this year! The one at the Playhouse and the one at the Theatre Royal. Our sister bought us tickets, which was very kind of her. Both were very good. There was a bit in the Theatre Royal one where everything went 3D, but unfortunately I dropped my glasses so I didn’t really know what was happening.

Notts County Twittergate
Oh my goodness, what is going on? They’re at the bottom of the league and going down. Our father, the legendary Notts County groundsman Peter Thompson, wouldn’t be very happy. The chairman doesn’t look happy either. We don’t own a computer, but it’s not rocket science to understand that sometimes you want to be a bit careful about what you put out there on the internet.

The ongoing gentrification of Sherwood
It’s great, but we have to wonder how long it’s going to last. A year back, there were 34 empty premises on the high street and now we can’t think of more than a couple. We’re going to do a pub crawl with our staff from the top, all the way down the road. We’ll be drunk by the time we get to our street and that’s only a few hundred metres away.

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?
