As always, we take a break from print in July and August. This month we’ve got the illustrative talents of Nick Taylor on art duties. Don’t forget you can press the button the far left of the top menu bar to peruse the artwork on its own.

We’ve secured interviews with folklorist and storyteller Simon Heywood, Manchester-based Tru Thoughts musician Werkha and local studio and rehearsal space Hybrid³. I’d also recommend reading Alt-Sheff’s guide to summer festivals in Sheffield, as well as Joe Penrose’s great piece on AFC Unity, a local alternative women’s football team.

Get in touch if you’ve got something to say or if there’s something you think we should be covering.

This month’s mix comes from a long-time friend of Now Then, photographer and filmmaker Nathan Gibson. Gibbo’s got some diverse tastes, it seems. Press play.
