The story of the Leisure Society began in Burton-Upon-Trent when Nick Hemming formed a band with Shane Meadows, Paddy Considine and Rich Eaton. Meadows and Considine would later go on to successful careers in film while Nick, in his own words, would spend a few years ‘working to support a music habit.’

It was through Nick’s Brighton connections that he and fellow Burton exile Christian Hardy met and began working with the Willkommen Collective, a loose collection of Brighton based musicians and promoters – it was from this collective that they drew the musicians who formed the permanent line-up of the band – Mike Siddell, Will Calderbank, Helen Whitaker, Bas Hankins & Darren Bonehill.
