Cover Story: Merry Milestone

This year The Big Issue Christmas edition is extra special: it’s also the 500th edition! And we’re celebrating the festive season and this incredible milestone with one bumper, festive, fabulous magazine. We added eight extra pages, so Big Issue vendors from around the country could share their reflections, Christmas memories and seasons greetings. Look out for a special tribute to “500”, too. 

Also in this issue:

Ruby Syme finds a way to bring “home” to her; Tara Judah explores the wonderful, and weird, world of Christmas films; our arts editors give some Christmas gift recommendations; and in Roving Eye, feathered friends get their close-ups. 

The star of this edition’s Vendor Profile is Carolyn from Brisbane. And we have Streetsheet contributions from Kyra in Melbourne and Mitchell in Sydney. We have two special photo contributions this edition: of Sharon from Melbourne and her beautiful boots, and Malcolm from Perth with his handy trolley.
