About Roundabout Publications

Roundabout Publications is a community magazine, dedicated to championing local businesses in and around North Tyneside. 

We deliver to more than 20,000 homes and businesses, helping our fantastic advertisers to reach a variety of customers each and every month. 

Each magazine features a selection of brilliant local businesses, topical articles from our local writers, puzzles, and a list of community events – so that our readers can get involved in the area where they live!

Our Story

Roundabout Publications launched in 2005, with the original Roundabout Monkseaton edition. Roundabout Tynemouth followed in 2009, with Roundabout Whitley Bay launching in 2018.

In 2021, Roundabout Publications was taken over by TheTechTeam Group. We added Roundabout North Tyneside to the portfolio after just one month, increasing readership to 20,000 homes and businesses across North Tyneside. 

We’re unbelievably excited to be taking the reins of such a fantastic, community focused magazine – and we can’t wait to expand its reach in the months and years ahead!

See what some of them say:

 

The magazine has only been out for two weeks and I have already had work worth over three
times the cost of my advertising and have seven quotes to get back yet. Your magazine is great
for my business.

Joe Embleton, Up A Height ... And Down To Earth

We are very pleased with the results of our advertising with you, which has been highly
successful. In particular, our Summer Sizzler campaign generated almost three times the
response we expected, with new customers noting that they had seen the advert in the
Roundabout.

Dean Titterton, Chief Executive Officer, YMCA North Tyneside

Just to let you know how successful St. Andrew’s Fair was last Saturday – we raised a record
amount of £3,960! We all felt the large colour advertisement in Roundabout Monkseaton proved invaluable and helped to increase the number of people who attended. Many thanks for your help.

Ann Hammond, St Andrew’s United Reformed Church

We firmly believe our pricing offers incredible value, particularly considering the high quality of production, and we know that readers keep their magazine as a reference for the whole month – this has been confirmed by our advertisers.

Distribution:

Our magazines are distributed across Monkseaton, Tynemouth, Whitley Bay, and North Tyneside on a monthly basis.

Format & Design

The magazines are high quality A5 size booklets using full colour print paper. Content is a mix of quality topical articles which includes local contributors, puzzles, recipes, and details of community groups and local events. We believe this content is crucial to the appeal of the magazine, increasing its readability and hence the impact of advertising.
