247 MAY – SOUTH WEST
Wow, it’s nearly time to celebrate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee! While I’m not exactly writing this wearing a twinset and pearls, sipping tea from a commemorative china cup and saucer, we do think 60 years of The Queen’s reign deserves some recognition. So, I hope you like the themed issue. Personally, I’m stoked that there’s so much extra stuff going on in the South West this month thanks to the Jubilee and I’m lusting after the Anna Lou hair crown featured in our retail therapy section. Our fashion pages also give a nod to the jubilee, in 247 style of course.
It’s not all about Queenie though – as well as doing some redesign work on the magazine this month, we’ve also got some great features for you. South West lovers, The Pigeon Detectives talk to us about their tour this month, we interview Grime MC and rapper; Wretch 32 and we meet singer/songwriter; Jack Wallen who ‘s first gig was supporting James Morrison. Don’t miss our feature on breakdancing in the South West either.
Thanks to everyone who has contributed this month. Drop me a line at Rachael @ outofhand.co.uk if you want to get involved or have a suggestion for the mag.
