Best of Birmingham Mag - Issue Schedule 2023/4

Schedule: Which editions would you like to be featured in to our readers?


You can choose your pick of editions to be featured in – for an event you may only need to book one or two issues in the run up to the event, to market to ticket-buyers early enough.

Series Bookings (First Come First Served):

Are you a venue, or a store or eatery? Subject to availability we offer series bookings. A series ensures you’re featured half the year (3 series) or inside every issue (6 series). There are operational savings for our team when multiple orders are reserved on the one booking, so in return we offer significant (often up to half price!) discounts for a series of 3-6 bookings.

BRILLIANT for restaurants, takeaways, shops, music venues, clubs etc, who need to keep themselves in the minds of the public and rise out of the noise and above the competition to show readers their inviting offers!

Let us know which dates are relevant to your offers in terms of our readers being able to buy, and ask about a series.
