A Magazine for Sheffield

Issue 132 March 2019

At Opus HQ we’ve spent the last few months planning Festival of Debate 2019. Alongside Now Then, it’s probably our most high-profile project and this year will be no exception, with over 60 events taking place all over Sheffield between 19 April and 1 June. The programme launches later this month, but in the meantime you can read more and get a couple of pre- announcements.

The no-nonsense artwork of Lisa Maltby decorates this issue.

Thank you to all our volunteer writers this month. It’s another strong issue, but in particular I’d recommend Harry Gold’s piece about Kraftwerk and Issac Hanson’s piece, Struggle for Space.
