After a summer of being asked where Now Then has gone, we return to print this month with a jam-packed issue, featuring artwork from Stockport’s Natalie M Wood, an extended feature on Festival of the Mind 2014, and an interview with Chris & Cosey of Throbbing Gristle fame ahead of their appearance at Sensoria next month.

The Now Then Discounts App should now be live and available for free download on Apples and Androids alike. Over 100 local independent traders are listed, each providing an offer or discount, along with contact details and interactive map location. Download it using the QR codes on this page. We hope it will help you find all kinds of independent traders across the city and make shopping locally an everyday choice.

If you are new to the city and to Now Then, welcome. Get in touch if you are interested in being involved in the magazine. We’d love to hear from you. 

Our mix this month comes courtesy of local chiptune maestro HarleyLikesMusic. Well worth a look in.
