A Magazine for Sheffield

Issue 83 February 2015

We’ve hit the ground running in 2015 with the Festival of Debate, which we will host in March and April ahead of the General Election. It’s a series of debates, discussions, Q&As, workshops and speeches aimed at getting people talking about the issues that matter to them. Read more in the article or visit Full programme announced very soon.

Rather than featuring an artist this month, we tasked a group of photographers and enthusiasts with putting together some images from Sheffield Archives. Read more in our interview with senior archivist, Cheryl Bailey. A refreshing change for us.

David Edwards returned to the Moor Market to follow up his piece from Now Then #75. Elsewhere, we’ve got interviews with Sam Genders, aka Diagrams, and K.O.G and The Zongo Brigade, and Andrew Wood bids farewell to the Radical Tourist.

This month’s mix, the 12th in the Now Then mix series, comes from local producer Louville of Bad Taste Records fame.
