Snap Notts is a regular feature by LeftLion Magazine that brings together poets, photographers, and Nottingham locations for incredible collaborative work. For our December issue, Michelle Mother Hubbard has been working with local photographer Emma Ford-Davis to create a poetry-photo combo centred around Nottingham Winter Wonderland. Ode on, then!

Our team have been working hard behind the scenes to bring these stories to the screen, and this evening delivers an EXCLUSIVE PREVIEW of the new series of short films.
Big Jared, Little Jared
LeftLion founder and Editor-in-Chief Jared Wilson enters the stage with his mini-me in tow. How a person so small could grow such an impressive beard, we will never know. Tonight we reveal the two Jareds, big and small, behind the face hair. Little Jared’s interview technique is less than orthodox, bringing the 3rd, 4th and 5th degrees for your viewing pleasure with surprises in store.
The Big LeftLion Quiz & Raffle
Hosted by Editor Ash Carter and Editor-at-Large Bridie Squires, The Big LeftLion Quiz is a raucous abomination of history facts, Nottingham knowledge, and unspecified body parts.

Speaking of which, we’re running a raffle of FANTASTIC wares from some of your favourite local independent businesses. Take a gamble. Don’t bother buying any Christmas presents and bag yersen umpteen strips of raffle tickets for ON-THE-EDGE GLORY.
