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

Slap Magazine: Issue 92 June 2019

Slap Magazine Issue 92 June 2019, June 2019

Well it’s finally the end of May, whatever next? Who knows? Let’s worry about the things we are in control of, such as what you‘re going to do for entertainment this month... Well I guess that all depends on what floats your boat, either way I can guarantee you’ll find it in June.

If it’s literature, spoken word and poetry you’re after then turn to page 8 where Suz Winspear tells us all about what to look forward to at Worcestershire LitFest from the 9th to 15th June. And on a similar theme, the main Evesham Festival of Words weekend is in this month from 28th - 30th. If it’s performing arts you’re after then Dancefest are holding Creativity and Wellbeing week with a series of events from the 10th June. Leominster comes alive with an eclectic range of activities such as live music, dancing and poetry with a festival 6th - 9th of June. In this issue we also look forward to the 34th Upton Jazz Festival on page 17.

We also look back at two very different festivals which took place in our region in May, with reviews from Birmingham's Swingamajig festival with Will Munn and Cheltenham Jazz festival with Geoffrey Head.

Continuing with our local festival previews we look forward to The Morton Stanley Festival in Redditch which takes place mid August with the strongest line-up yet. If it’s a June festival you want then check out our local festival list after this month's listings followed by just some of the local arts events, exhibitions and cinema.

As usual we’ve reviewed some of the latest releases from local artists which don’t forget, you can hear for yourselves by following Slap on Spotify.
