Advertising in The Week In for Bristol & NE Somerset

We offer four different types of advert opportunity within the paper:

  • Run of paper – priced per column/centimetre
  • Large display adverts – special rates for full and half page adverts
  • Front cover adverts – high impact pre-set sized adverts
  • Directory – the popular choice for local tradespeople


Run of paper

Cost per single column centimetre = £4.20
To calculate the price of your advert take the depth in centimetres by the number of columns wide by £4. Some examples are shown below:

Sizes Cost
A 5 cm x 1 col advert £21
A 6cm x 2 col advert £50.40
A 10cm x 3 col advert £126

Series Discounts:
If you place adverts for more than 1 week, you can then apply the following series discounts

Weeks Cost
2 weeks 10%
6 weeks 20%
12 weeks 30%
26 weeks 35%
52 weeks 40%

It is not necessary to book consecutive weeks in order to qualify for the discount. Alternate weeks, monthly or specified dates are all possible and the total number of weeks booked will dictate the discount.
