Dear readers, performers, artists, advertisers, contributors, supporters and anyone working in arts or entertainment.

We did not want for issue 101 of SLAP Mag to be entered in to 'room 101'... But with the current situation regarding Coronavirus (Covid-19) that we all find ourselves in, we are aware that producing a print edition of SLAP mag for April 2020 is not viable. Our distribution points are mostly public spaces where people gather, the current advice by the government is to avoid these (without, by the way, any support for those industries, or those who support them).

It would be unfair on our advertisers, many of which are stockists of SLAP Mag, it wouldn't be fair on our delivers to distribute them, and that's if there's anyone around to pick up a copy to read. The likelihood is, judging by our inbox this morning, many venues, pubs and theatres will be forced to close without any of the protections of an enforced closure scenario.

We hope you and your loved ones are not too badly affected either by the virus or by the long term consequences of.
Best regards
