A Magazine for Sheffield

Issue 104 November 2016

Our featured artist this month is the esteemed hyper-realist Ben Ashton. His new show, The King is Dead, Long Live The King, ran at the Cob Gallery in London last month. Read our interview with him and go to his website to see the full monty.

Off The Shelf Festival ends soon, so quickly read our interview with comedian, actress and activist Francesca Martinez, then go to her curated day as part of the festival on Sunday 6 November, How To Create A Better World.

The Festival of Debate continues until 25 November. Check out our summary of remaining events in the festival programme, read Laurence Peacock’s article on the NHS, then get yourself down to the staged reading of his play, Duty of Care, at Theatre Delicatessen on 8 November.

As ever, if you have something to say in these pages, please get in touch. We are always on the look-out for new contributors.

This month’s eclectic Now Then mix comes from Joe at Eye Full Clothing.
