I wrote for Arena back in the mid 90s when, under the then editor, Kathryn Flett, it could plausibly describe itself as "the UK's leading quality men's magazine". Sadly that didn't last long. Loaded suddenly came along and Arena followed it downmarket. It was like watching your grandfather try to "boogie along" to disco numbers. As a result, no doubt, it lost much of its readership. So much so that the magazine has now closed. Anyway, below are some of the features I wrote for the publication during its heyday, arranged in no particular order of merit.
