Also inside the 16 page full colour, high quality, magazine are fair dates, Baroness Whitaker and the Gypsy Co-op, Kate Green MP on the fight for justice for young Travellers in custody, the ‘Catapult Kings’, ’Feet on the Ground’ - an arts project from Leeds GATE, a profile on Traveller artist Delaine Le Bas, a youth forum in Wales and tributes to Peter Mercer and Bill Rogers.
The Travellers’ Times Magazine is brought to you by Mike Doherty, Lisa Smith, Charles Newland, Damian Le Bas and Chris Smith.
Nic Millington, CEO of the Rural Media Company which hosts The Travellers’ Times project, said that; “with such a hugely skilful and knowledgeable team the future for The Travellers’ Times looks bright.”
An estimated 100,000 people read the 20,000 copies of The Travellers Magazine that is currently published twice a year. The Magazine is sent to campaign organisations, Traveller sites, councils, doctors, libraries, prisons, colleges, schools and, of course, to Gypsy, Roma and Traveller individuals and families – and non-Traveller supporters – living in caravans, houses and chalets the length and breadth of the country. The previous November 2017 edition of The Travellers’ Times Magazine was also sent to every single Member of Parliament and to the editor of every national newspaper. Your voice gets heard.
