ISSUE 1377

Meet the cultural revolutionaries

Meet the cultural truth-tellers who are shaking up the system. From Netflix hit Top Boy to the latest play from the National Theatre, we speak to the actors, directors, actors and musicians reacting to the turbulent times we’re living in.

We also shine the spotlight on Emerge Festival. For two nights this week, some of the capital’s most iconic venues will be filled with electrifying entertainment. And readers can get a £5 discount on tickets at the door of any participating venue!
