This time we are putting our spotlight on some of the many independent local newspapers, bulletins, etc. that were produced in Nottingham over the last five decades.

Nottingham has long had a rich tradition of independent and radical publishing. Please see below for digitised issues of a few of those titles, providing us with the other first draft of history.

Please note that another Spotlight on: ... feature already lists the many issues of local LGBTQ+ materials we have in our Digital Library, with more to be added soon.

Please also note this post remains very much a work in progress, put together in preparation of our upcoming exhibition at the Nottingham Contemporary (Sep 27-29th 2019). Further titles and additional issues will be added over the next couple of months, so make sure to keep an eye on this page.

Were you involved in the production or distribution of these or any other titles?
Do you have any stories or anecdotes you would like to share in relation to these or similar publications?
Do you have a box or a folder of similar materials in your attic (beneath your bed/in the shed) and would consider to either donate them to us or loan them to us for digitisation?

If so, we would very much like to hear from you (please note that we usually respond to emails rather fast - if you did not have an answer after three days, please check your spam folder!).

More content to be added soon, until then have fun exploring the materials below!
