Plymouth Marjon University Journalism students present 4th Issue of Sound Magazine

Released: 18.07.19

Each Summer, the magazine informs Plymothians, visitors and tourists about some of the hottest places in town, such as the newly renovated Plymouth Market, National Trust sites, and Cap’n Jasper’s, as well as a feature which celebrates Plymouth’s alternative High Street, Ebrington Street. This year’s issue focused primarily on Plymouth’s main Characters, which explains why the iconic Sir Francis Drake stole the cover this year.

The magazine follows on from three previous issues, each year 2000 copies are distributed all over Plymouth, reaching far and wide across the city.

Programme Lead for Journalism at Plymouth Marjon, Mike Baker said:

“I can't believe it's been four years since we started Sound, but it feels like it's just got better every time.

"We really tried to get under the skin of our city this year, uncover hidden gems and meet some of the characters in Plymouth. The features looking at the history of Cap'n Jasper's and the people and businesses who bring Ebrington Street to life do just that.

"It's a great read, and it looks lovely - the students have once again produced something a professional agency would be proud of.

"It's a must-read for visitors and locals alike. Plymouth is one of those cities where new stuff happens all the time. So keep an eye out for Sound number five this time next year."

Dave Bray wrote a story in Sound about paddle-boarding, which informs the reader of how you can go about learning in Plymouth. He said: “"I was keen to write the articles for sound and it was great to be able to choose stories I’m passionate about. The creation process was certainly testing, with a tight deadline and a lot of work, but holding the finished product in my hand made it all worthwhile.”

Sound is available around the city in major tourist areas and key attractions, such as Plymouth Tourism Office, The Aquarium, Theatre Royal, Plymouth Pavilions, Cap’n Jasper’s and more.
