On Sale Now - The Big Issue Edition No. 539 - 21st Birthday Edition

Ed-539-21st-Anniversary-LR  cropthumbThe Big Issue turns 21! This special anniversary edition celebrates 21 years of The Big Issue, and looks at how far we’ve come since our first edition in 1996. In a special photo series, we share stories of vendors and their regular customers. This jam-packed edition also looks at the significance of 21st birthdays and why they're regarded as such a milestone, and with help from illustrator Michael Weldon, shares a timeline of key events in our history.

Also in this issue...

Ray “Alf Stewart” Meagher talks rugby, boarding school, Home and Away and learning how to act from the tailend of a horse in Letter to My Younger Self. One Direction’s Harry Styles is going his own way with his new solo album. We interview director Terence Davies for his Emily Dickinson biopic A Quiet Passion, starring Cynthia Nixon (from Sex and the City).
