By the time you read this we will be deep into the 2017 programme of Festival of Debate, coordinated by Opus and Now Then. Take a look at some highlights we’ve picked out this month or go to festivalofdebate.com for all 50+ events. There’s something for everyone.

Also on the horizon is Sheffield Doc/Fest, the annual blessing of documentary lovers everywhere. We spoke to Daisy Asquith, director of Queerama, which is opening Doc/Fest this year, about how the film fits with the festival’s themes of ‘change’ and ‘resistance’.

Elsewhere, we’ve got the creepy artwork of Daniel Danger, an interview with local instrumental rock maestros King Capisce, and a reappraisal of vinyl culture by Alex Keegan.

Whatever your persuasion, please get out of the house to vote on 8 June. If your vote is ‘none of the above’, then fine, but get out there and make your view known.
