This year Now Then celebrates its tenth birthday.

It’s hard to believe we’ve been around that long. It feels like a lifetime ago that plans were being hatched for its birth and Sheffield has changed so much, but many things stay the same. The independent scene here continues to flourish, helped along by that most Sheffield of attributes: mutual support.

We’ll do our best to keep shouting about the things that make this city unique. Please, if you have a perspective or a story to share, get in touch with us. Now Then is only as strong as its citizen journalists – but you don’t need training or even a background in writing to get involved. Tips for new writers can be found here.

Happy New Year.
