From us to you, Merry Christmas

Issue 1338



Our annual Santa-adorned cover has made its way back round again, officially heralding the countdown to Christmas. This year it’s packed full of festive fun to truly get you in the spirit with big names and Big Issue favourites like Jodie Comer, Mark Hamill, Armando Iannucci, Chris Packham, the QI Elves and more!

We’ve put together a bumper best of from our Letter To My Younger Self series, gathered some recommended reading from our favourite writers, artists, changemakers and friends, and we direct you to how you can help if you see someone sleeping rough.

  • Killing Eve star Jodie Comer on her fears the show wouldn’t be a hit in Britain, filming series two, and what to give a killer for Christmas

  • What you can do to help rough sleepers as the winter weather bites. And how supporting The Big Issue makes a life-changing difference all year round

  • The Big Issue’s books of the year as chosen by Luke Skywalker and some of our other influential friends

  • Look away Cliff! The heathen takeover of the Christmas single

Pick up your copy on the streets today, and support your local vendor as we hurtle towards December 25th!

Happy Christmas everyone!
