Issue 125 August 2018

We are back in print next month, but in the meantime we’ve got another solid online-only issue for you.

The finishing touches are being put on Now Then app 2.0 and we’re really excited to get it out into the world. As well as all the previous features around supporting independent traders, it will bring Now Then content to your fingertips, something we’ve wanted to do for a long time.

We’re also planning a Now Then 10th birthday celebration event for later this year – a large music event at a TBC venue in Sheffield. Stay tuned in September and October for announcements.

See you next month, back in black.
