The Big Issue #256
- 25 August to 24 September
September is Heritage Month, and we couldn’t resist visiting some of the Mother City’s popular landmarks (see page 16). Not to worry, we’ve added a few tourism gems, too, just in case you want to explore some different scenery.
To ensure our little ones don’t feel left out, check out this month’s Little Issue. It’s filled with interesting facts about Mzansi’s heritage.
And what would a spring issue be without flowers? Namaqualand is in full bloom this time of year. Why not round up your family or friends and head up the West Coast (see page 28). You won’t be disappointed. Don’t forget to take your Big Issue along and catch up on some reading.
We’re featuring Craig Lucas, winner of The Voice SA (see page 26). Did you know that Craig graduated his finance honours with distinction just two weeks before doing the live shows in Johannesburg? He’s musically talented with brains to boot!
And, what would an issue be without our valued Big Issue vendors? This month, we speak to vendors Thembakazi Sabile, Noluthando Nombeleko and Nomntu Gogotya, and showcase a selection of vendor art pieces, which were inspired by music.
Thank you to all those who supported The Big Issue Winter Drive. Look out for details of our upcoming The Big Issue Stationery Drive, in aid of our vendors’ children in our next issue.
