Broadcast Bartender debates a South Leeds culture

The latest edition of Lloyd & Wilson’s Broadcast Bartender series, Constructing a Blind Pig*, was recorded at The Holbeck WMC in South Leeds on 29 September 2016. Five drinkers and a special guest bartender discussed the following provocations in front of a live audience:

  • Is there a visible common culture within South Leeds?
  • What is the picture of a post-Brexit society?
  • Where are we now and where will we end up?

You can listen to the debate here:

Constructing a Blind Pig is part of Hidden Civil War, an exhibition and series of events programmed by The NewBridge Project in Newcastle Upon Tyne.


*The term Blind Pig is another term for unlicensed bars, much like a Speakeasy. The proprietor charges their customers an entry fee to view an attraction (such as an animal) and then serves a ‘complimentary’ alcoholic beverage, thus circumventing the law.
