Issue 1225 - 1975

It’s our music special. As well as The 1975 (whose fans were currently melting our social media channels) we have John Lydon with his vinegary and amusing fury at the state of all things from politics to the Great British Bake Off. We have veteran Petula Clarke delivering her Letter To My Younger Self, we have Andreya Triana, a rising star who will take to the stage at our big Birthday bash. We also have the magnificent Kronos Quartet talking about music and place and we look at how investments in great projects like those Big Issue Invest have backed can help kids be more Skepta.

Please note once this edition is no longer on sale with Big Issue vendors (from Monday 10th October) it will be classed as a 'back issue'. All back issues are priced at £4 per copy plus P&P

The Big Issue

The Big Issue’s own-brand products support the creation of a range of work-based opportunities for disadvantaged people.
The Big Issue has spent over 27 years at the helm of self-help revolution. It all began with the launch of The Big Issue magazine in 1991, which was created to offer homeless and disadvantaged people the opportunity to earn a legitimate income by selling a magazine on the streets. Since then over 200 million copies magazine have been sold by over 100,000 people. Vendors buy the magazine upfront for £1.50 and sell it on to the public for £3.00, and in doing so each runs their own micro-enterprise. In 2005 Big Issue Invest was launched, with the aim of extending The Big Issue’s mission by financing the growth of social enterprises and charities across the UK. To date the organisation has directly invested in over 350 such organisations, and manages or advises on more than £170 million of social funds.
