About Brian Fanzine

Brian was a Nottingham Forest FC fanzine created and published by supporters of the football club between 1988 and 1996...

In 2023 Nottingham media company LeftLion made a successful bid to the National Lottery Heritage Fund to digitally archive the back catalogue of the fanzine to make it available digitally for future generations to read. 

As part of that project we also made this film (watch below), with some of the old contributors talking about their work on the film. This was premiered at Metronome in Nottingham on Tuesday 23 May 2024 and made available to the public shortly afterwards...

Our project received favourable press in a number of outlets. Please see selected links below:
