The Sheffield culture guide written by in-the-know locals

Now Then is all about supporting the things that make a community what it is – creativity, collaboration and conscience. The magazine supports the local economy and therefore does not work with chains, corporations or multinationals. Instead, it works exclusively with independent traders, community groups, charities and local government.

Now Then is printed 9 months of the year (January, July and August are online-only months) and distributed across Sheffield and its surrounding areas. The mag has a monthly readership of around 30,000. Local people are encouraged to contribute to Now Then, whatever their skills or experience, and each magazine is built around artwork from a different featured artist.

Due to the Covid-19 crisis, Now Then is not currently printing a physical magazine but you can access brand new content daily on the Now Then App.
