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 99 February 2020

Slap Magazine Issue 99 February 2020, February 2020

Dear Readers...

As we enter our 10th year, Slap mag would like to wish our supporters, contributors & readers, a very happy 2020.

SLAP is dedicated to promoting arts and music through monthly news, reviews and gig listings with 5,000 copies of our FREE mag distributed across Worcestershire and the surrounding counties.

As we move into a new decade, we want to encourage more people to get involved. From writers and distributors to sponsors and advertisers, we need your help to build on our current success. Sustainability has to be a focus for us as we move forward into what we hope will be our biggest and best year yet.

So - we are looking for your help!

Contributors: we’re looking for new and dynamic writers to get involved with SLAP. Contributor’s guidelines are available on the website, but all we ask is that word counts are manageable, and high-resolution images accompany submissions.

Distributors: we are always looking for new volunteers to help get SLAP into the public domain!

Advertising: A big thank you to all those who have supported us so far, and we are continuing to look for ongoing support from new advertisers.

SLAP is the go-to publication for Arts & Music in the West Midlands and offers an affordable way to reach over 5,000 potential clients across 3 counties and boasts web hits of 28,000 from all over the country. Contact or call 01905 26660.

Alternatively, if you like what we do and fancy supporting our volunteer-driven publication with sponsorship, we have space on our website for your logo to say thank you.
