Your Essential Guide To What’s On & Where.

What’s On Southwest Magazine is a regional multimedia publication that covers and serves the Southwest of England. What’s On Publications was formed & established in 1996.  We are a time served, well-established media company specialising in online and print advertising.  What’s On Southwest Magazine features all the essential information on Music Festivals, Lifestyle, Entertainment, Live Music, Tourist Attractions, Dining Out, Nightlife, Events Guide and the largest circulating What’s On & Entertainment Guide in the Southwest of England.  What’s On Southwest is distributed directly into the hands of readers who are most likely to benefit from the content and the exclusives that our advertisers have to offer – in print and online.  All our features and advertisers have more essential information online, to complement the magazine.

We have the most comprehensive Festival Guide, Live Music & What’s On Events in the Southwest, featuring Top Family Attractions & Great days out, the best in International & local live music, concerts, comedy & family fun days out. We also have all the local and regional live music dates for live music venues in & around the region.  We circulate our theatre shows, live music listings and what’s on events guide to many other forms of media, including local newspapers, radio stations, Facebook and social networking sites. We always go that extra mile to make sure that our advertisers and sponsors get the best possible service and the widest coverage and reach to their target audience and get a great response. We are the only media company that provides these services.

Our outlets include all advertisers, Tourist Attractions, Live Music Venues, Entertainment Venues, Theatres, Leisure Centres, Shops, Concert Halls, Restaurants, Tourist Information Centres, Shopping Centres, Public Houses, Nightlife, and many more outlets. We appeal to all ages and the magazine has been the most popular publication of its kind. We have remained un-rivalled ever since the creation of What’s on Southwest in October 1996. The magazine contains many exclusives online with up-to-date information about Tickets for events, Music & Family festivals, exhibitions and shows which are taking place across the Southwest. None of our content is featured in the mainstream press.

We take great pride in the fact that our business has continued consistently to grow to host the largest number of clients and advertisers than any other publication in print and online in the Southwest. We have gone through two recessions and the pandemic. Our reputation is solid and consistent with our advertisers and readership. As with every year we have seen substantial growth with the magazine, as we continue to grow in popularity, circulation and readership.   When you place an advert with us you are making an investment and it is our job to make sure you get a return on that investment.

We use online technology wisely to go that extra mile for our clients and readers. Our official Facebook social media sites have over 80 thousand subscribers. Our official website has a readership of over two million readers a year.  We post hourly with the best exclusives the Southwest has to offer.  We also sponsor posts to get maximum results for online publicity.

There is a clear cut reason why we have more clients and readers than any other entertainment guide based in the Southwest. Not only do we have the largest circulating publication, we also have more subscribers to our website and social media than any other entertainment publication in the Southwest of England.

Please enjoy all that we have to offer! 99% of all our content isn’t publicised in the main stream media. Here’s to the next 30 years!
