Welcome to Now Then Manchester, a magazine, website, blog and promoter that champions grass roots culture, citizen journalism, local traders, community and entertainment.
Since launching in October 2012, we have printed 12 issues of a free independent bi-monthly magazine, sharing the ethos of Now Then Sheffield, which has been published by Opus Independents since April 2008.
Are you an independent trader, charity, co-op, community group or local government organisation in Manchester? If so, we have online advertising and promotion opportunities available, and also offer a flyer and leaflet distribution service across Manchester as well as much of Yorkshire and North Derbyshire. Contact james [at] opusindependents [dot] com for information.
If you are interested in contributing to, or being involved with, the magazine in any form, please get in touch.
