City Fun: The Hidden History of Manchester's Favourite Fanzine
Artefact added : 21st November 2012

David Wilkinson Says –
With hindsight, there is a kind of poignancy in one of the last issues of City Fun featuring news of a new Manchester listings magazine called 'City Life' which, like its predecessors, may succeed briefly then fizzle out. In reality, City Life went on to run in physical form for twenty-two years and still has an online presence. At least for its first nine years it essentially took up where City Fun left off, with its co-operative structure and mixed coverage of music, arts and politics.
