The Thompson Brothers on Glastonbury, Beer and Shots in the Dark

Nottingham's most opinionated grocers on...

Nottingham Craft Beer Week
We liked the beer with the yellow bird on it (Jay IPA by Magpie brewery) a lot. We also liked the one with the monkey on it (Funky Gibbon by Blue Monkey). But the other one (Drink Beer, Hail Satan by Black Iris) was too rich and sharp for our tastes. You can’t drink six pints of that stuff, which is what we like to do. Have they thought of watering those beers down a little bit?

Summer Festivals
The Glastonbury line-up this year was superb! We’d love to see The Killers and The Cure again. We saw them back in the eighties when Lovecats was first released. Although we don’t like open air festivals, and we’d much prefer to be in the Royal Concert Hall sitting down on proper seats in the dry. We might go to Splendour this year though; All Saints, The Specials, Fine Young Cannibals and the Manic Street Preachers. Plus that Rag’N’Bone Man too. It’s their best line-up yet.

Shots in the Dark
We went to see the greatest film ever made, Kind Hearts and Coronets, twice last month at Broadway. We had to go a second time because we were disturbed the first time by people rustling their popcorn all around us. They should stop selling food in the cinema, it’s horrible. Can we also mention that we’re selling bedding plants for £1 please?


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?
