LeftLion Magazine

The only media outlet in Nottingham worth the steam off your wazz...


We're a group of journalists, illustrators, tech geeks, photographers, and graphic designers who make a monthly magazine about all the cool stuff in Nottingham. LeftLion's been abaht for over ten years now; serving up everything from local contemporary literature, to interviews with people who review public toilets. 

Jared Wilson, Alan Gilby and Tim Bates 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 with the music, words, and characters of the city.

After the long reign of Al Needham, 2013 saw Ali Emm become Editor and a small team move into Hockley offices, and the wheel was handed over to Bridie Squires in 2017. LeftLion now kicks out 12,000 copies every month and publishes a load of content online. 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. 

Get stuck in, duck.
