Last night (27th November) Palma Violets and Childhood played a secret gig in the kitchen and living room of a house in Lenton, Nottingham. Around 100 people crowded into the typical student property on Bute Avenue.

Lambeth’s indie rockers Palma Violets, best known for hit single ‘Best of Friends’, used the Nottingham gig as a stop-off between their Manchester and Oxford UK tour dates. The psychedelic Childhood provided excellent support; former University of Nottingham students, they later described Lenton as their ‘spiritual homeland’.

Impact has exclusive pictures of a gig which gave an entirely new meaning to the word ‘intimate’.
