Welcome to the October issue of SLAP Magazine which marks the end of a glorious summer of festivals for us.

In fact I write my editorial from the Forest of Dean, home to the wonderful Something else in the Dean festival - sadly the last of the season.

We take a snapshot view of this years hugely successful Worcester Music Festival with Andy O’Hare, surely the busiest man of the whole weekend. Talking of snapshots, we bring you the judges top three from the WMF photo competition. If you’re quick you can see all 25 finalists on display at the Arts Workshop until Saturday 5th October following the presentation which took place as we went to press. The results were a tightly guarded secret but we chose Will Smiths shot of Japanese all girl band No Cars to decorate this months cover.

So I hope you enjoyed your summer as much as we did and have plenty of good memories to help you through the winter. There is of course plenty going on to look forward to, we highlight just some of the many local gigs, performance art and exhibitions to whet the appetite so get out there and discover something new. Remember SLAP is nothing without your input so if you feel inspired enough why not share your experience and write a review for us.

So that leaves me to say thanks as always for your support and especially to our contributers, advertisers and distributers who work tirelessly to bring SLAP to somewhere near you, keep up the good work.
