Event publicity

Emailed newspapers

Guests see ‘Thirsk Morning’ in their local accommodation and it helps them decide how to spend their time. Almost 400 copies are delivered to B&Bs, and anyone else who wants the newspaper, without charge every day before 7am. The circulation is all requested.

The paper contains the weather forecast, a real-time view of Thirsk Market Place and details of what is on today (and tomorrow if there is space).

The ‘Local Events’ newsletter is open to anyone and has been requested by 1,000+ people. It is sent to them every Thursday. You can sign up here:

Free event listing

‘Thirsk Morning’ and ‘Local Events’ draw from the same database. There is no charge to add your event and it is easily done using this form:

We class an ‘event’ fairly loosly. Usually it is for a single day or at the most a few weeks. It should not be part of the normal activities of a business – a restaurant Spanish dinner would not count. However, a one-off live music event at the restaurant would probably be accepted for free inclusion as an event.

We promote longer term exhibitions or courses in these ways:

  • If the event is newsworthy we may include it on the front page of ‘Local Events’. For example a weekly course of French lessons might be accepted as a free of charge news item. Send your news by email:
  • You can pay for publicity in either publication, see below.
