Editorial

Next month is our tenth birthday as a publication. It’s likely we’ll take this opportunity for a year-long celebration of the whole of Opus, the company which publishes Now Then, but we’re still weighing up exactly how best to do this, so let us know if you have ideas.

Our featured artist for March 2018 is local illustrator and all-round optimist, Kate Morgan. Find her work spread across the issue as usual, as well as a chat with her on page 35.

We are really excited to be launching the Festival of Debate 2018 programme this month. Turn to page 10 for the low-down on just some of the 70+ events happening between 18 April and 29 June, exploring politics, culture and society in 2018. In particular, we’re chuffed to be bringing Yanis Varoufakis to Sheffield to open the festival.

Elsewhere we’ve got great pieces about Andro and Eve and suffrage statues, as well as an interview with former Bellowhead band leader, Jon Boden.

As always, get in touch if you have thoughts about the magazine you’d like to share – and, even better, if you want to form said thoughts into a publishable article…
