Once again, the time has come for us to put the print magazine to bed for summer, coming back fresh-faced and super-keen in September.

Over summer, we will be re-launching the existing Now Then Discounts app for Apple and Android devices, bringing magazine content and artwork across and calling it simply the Now Then app. If you’ve already got it installed, the new version will come to you as if by magic via automatic update.

This month we’ve got pieces on Sheffield Doc/Fest, including Filmreel’s pick of the festival and an interview with video artists Iain Forsyth and Jane Pollard about their new installation, DOUBLETHINK. Joyce Bullivant explores heritage in her Timewalk piece, while Localcheck looks at co-operative working. Our featured artist is the superb Helena Pérez Garcia. We can’t get enough of her work. As always, there’s plenty more to sink your teeth into.

Festival of Debate continues until 29 June, so take a look at the site for full details of our events exploring politics, economics and society – festivalofdebate.com. I’d also recommend you attend the launch of the Hannah Directory on 7 June at Access Space and pick up a copy of this informative, beautifully-designed, pocket-sized book “celebrating the great stuff that people are doing in places in England’s north, and asking how even more of it can happen”. A fine statement of intent.
