This year, Nottingham’s LeftLion magazine turns fifteen. Each month, we print 10,000+ copies of our magazine and distribute them to 350+ venues across the city.

We are a key advocate for entertainment and culture in the city, and play an essential supporting role to arts and cultural organisations both big and small.

The print media industry is in decline; over the last few years we’ve seen much bigger media like NME and The Independent discontinue their print editions due to spiraling print costs and a decline in advertising revenue. We do not intend to go that way. LeftLion is here to stay, but we need your help to make that happen.

This Kickstarter campaign has two purposes:

1) The LeftLion 100 Covers Book
To celebrate our 100th issue, we plan to print an A4 book featuring the artwork from every magazine cover we’ve published thus far, with some commentary from our team. Unlike our monthly magazine, this book won’t contain any commercial advertising. If you donate £15 or more to our campaign then you’ll receive a copy of this book with your name printed inside.

2) LeftLion Supporters Package
If you donate £35 or more, you’ll become an official supporter of LeftLion. This means you’ll get a copy of our magazine posted through your door each month for the next six or twelve months, with your name listed inside each copy. You’ll also get our 100 Covers Book and a selection of LeftLion memorabilia and gifts.

Risks and challenges

Very few risks. We've published magazines for 15 years now and we plan to continue for another 15 years duck.
