We’re pleased to be back in print this month with a colourful feature from local artist Bryan John. There are some hard-hitting articles here, covering topics like time banking, tenant rights and ethical banking, plus interviews with up-and-coming poet Hollie McNish and the one and only Gary Numan. We’ve also got the low-down on the new Theatre Delicatessen venue, opening next month.

We’re running a gig to launch the new King Capisce album on 15 September at Abbeydale Picture House, with support from Roller Trio. You should come down. More info in Live Picks.

Another development at Now Then HQ is our regulation by IMPRESS, starting this month. It’s really important to us that the standard of journalism in the mag is top-notch, so we’re pleased to have set up a formal complaints procedure, as well as committing to follow the IMPRESS Standards Code.

Get in touch with me if you want to contribute to Now Then or just have comments you want to share. We now have a guide for new writers, which can be found at nowthenmagazine.com/sheffield/get-involved.
