The Forum Magazines

Our reputation as the ‘magazine to be seen in’ has allowed us to expand the magazines over the last three years to the point where we now have a combined readership of over 50,000 and cover over 1/3 of Hampshire. We print in excess of 20,000 magazines monthly which all are all hand delivered door to door by our own dedicated delivery team. Our delivery agents are vetted and checked regularly to ensure that there is blanket coverage in our designated delivery areas.

Every month the Forum publications are filled with an exciting mix of content. We have several dedicated writers who provide us with factual and amusing articles. We also have a wealth of community and local interest news and events.  The Forum magazines are professionally designed by our design team at Luminata Design and are printed to the highest quality using renewable sourced paper and are delivered to ABC1 households throughout Central and Southern Hampshire.

The positive feedback from our advertisers and readers has enhanced our reputation and we are delighted to be able attract larger businesses to our pages without losing our initial idea which was; ‘to provide a high quality, interesting community based publication whilst offering low cost competitive advertising rates’.
