The MagazineOur magazine (32 pages, many in colour, A5) will not only keep you up to date with all the latest news, but it will give even the most devoted fans new insights, thanks to exclusive interviews with the people that worked with ABBA back in the days, stories about records and memorabilia for both beginners and advanced collectors, a Q&A section and specials about different events in the careers of Agnetha, Björn, Benny and Frida. This is also the place to look for competitions where you can win things that are autographed by all four members, get tickets to shows, get the latest Fan Club Shop catalogue and much more. We have our own photographers, access to a big archive of unpublished photos (every magazine includes an A4 poster) and, besides the stories by our own staff members, we are always welcoming entries from our readers. Every now and then, there is a special gift with the magazine, like the sought-after CDs that Polar made for us. We are proud to say that several of the people in the inner circle around ABBA have asked for a subscription and, of course, the ABBA members themselves get their own copies.
The magazine is published four times a year, very occasionally with extra newsletters in between. The magazine is published in English. A translation in French is available on request.
Magazine 153 is published on the 2nd December
This issue features reports on both the Fan Club's recent gathering in Roosendaal and the wonderful Webinar held in late November with Voyage director, Baillie Walsh and the show's producers Svana Gisla and Ludvig Andersson.
Valerie Holiday, a long-term member of The Three Degrees, talks to us about her love of ABBA and her time in the music world, while we look back to 1982 when ABBA made their final 'pre-Voyage' recordings and TV appearances, with Agnetha also branching out into acting in the Swedish film Raskenstam.
Here are the links which are mentioned in the news section and at other places in the magazine.
