The End Of An Era
The Variety in Radford has shut down, quite possibly for good.
Although it wasn't to everyone's taste - it was like walking into the 70s, and the entertainment was decidedly un-right-on - The Variety was proper Notts, and fucking hilarious. I was absolutely gagging for my mates from London to come and visit, so I could take them for a concentrated dollop of purest Nottingham - and whether you liked it or not, it was far more representative of Nottingham culture than a thousand bought-in art galleries. And if you didn't go, you'll never know.
As far as I know, LeftLion was the only publication to do a proper interview with the people who ran the place. And here it is.
