Our deadline for articles is usually the Sunday about halfway through the month before the cover date. Our production week is the week after the deadline, and we go to press on the following Monday, with distribution starting on the Wednesday.

  • April–May 2021: Sunday 14th March
  • June–July 2021: Sunday 16th May
  • August–September 2021: Sunday 18th July.
  • October–November 2021: Sunday 12th September
  • December 2021–January 2022: Sunday 14th November
  • February–March 2022: Sunday 16th January 2022

If you need to send copy, change ads, or add events after the deadline, email the editor to discuss this. Production week is the Monday to Friday after the deadline.

A D S
The deadline for advertising is a week before the copy deadline.

D I A R Y
The deadline for the diary is noon on the Wednesday after the copy deadline.

D E L I V E R Y
We go to press on the Monday morning ten days after the copy deadline. Magazines go out to our distributors on the Wednesday and Thursday, and they deliver them to subscribers from then and through the weekend. We choose our press day so that the end of the weekend is always before the first day of the cover month.

Magazines go into local shops on or before the first day of the cover month. You’ll see our posters go up along the high street as soon as copies are on sale.
