A Magazine for Sheffield

Issue 141 December 2019

We were chuffed to bits to see the hard work of Rob Lee in creating the ‘Now Then, Then Now’ mural recognised with a Keith Hayman Award for Public Art last month. Thanks for putting us on the map, Rob :)

We’re ending the year in style with interviews with veteran filmmaker Ken Loach and local rapper-poet Otis Mensah. In the Food section we’re got all kinds of alternative festive feasting suggestions, while Morley grabs the general election in his vice-like grip . Loads more inside too.

I say it every year but it bears repeating: please consider spending your money with local businesses this Christmas. They’re the best people to go to for unique gift ideas and the more we can keep our money in the Sheffield economy the better. We really are spoilt for choice - but let’s show our independent traders some love.
