As this summer edition lands on the streets of Manchester, our exciting new collaboration will already be on the taps of the city’s finest alehouses. I’m referring to our summery pale ale brewed recently with Marble Beers, which I’d encourage you to try if you haven’t already. Read about our day at the brewery in the Favourites section.

On Saturday 26 July we continue our summer events series, visiting the Miners Centre in Moston. Vocal sculptor and issue 2 interviewee (read that online if you missed it) Jason Singh will be performing to a film in the Small Cinema venue and Mind On Fire will be running a DJing workshop in the next room. It’s all free to attend so get involved. There’s more info on the listings page and here.

Inside the magazine, particularly eye-catching are Simon Bray’s photo feature of Moston, David Dunnico’s second statues instalment, Grace Williams’ visit to the Central Library and Mr Hass’s illustrations, and dive in deeper for music, theatre, film, literature and more.
