This week's bumper edition of the Herald has 56 packed pages.

It's been the source of much antagonism in Stratford between those who want to keep things safe and those who believe it's destroying business in the town.

Now, after weeks of wrangling, all sides have finally come together to sort out the temporary traffic scheme – or the Great Barrier Grief, as we've dubbed it. You can read all the details of what's about to happen next in our special report.

But that's not all you'll find in your fantastic value Herald. If you haven't seen Stratford's newspaper for a while, there have been a few changes recently. We've transformed into a handy compact edition – much easier to handle – and we're bringing you bumper editions packed with news you won't find anywhere else, week after week.

This week, for instance, we've got:

  • An EXCLUSIVE behind-the-scenes peek at preparations for the reopening of the Shakespeare Birthplace this weekend;
  • A new row brewing over street markets on Waterside;
  • The terrifying story of Oscar, the dog that ate a kebab skewer;
  • A special feature on the resurgence of vinyl records;


All your usual news, views, arts, entertainment, sport, business, property, features and the latest from across Herald Country – and you still get change from a quid!

Pick up a copy of the newspaper when you're out and about, or download the digital version from our website and enjoy the virtual edition on your favourite device.
