Covering Morpeth, Cramlington and Bedlington.

Our very first magazine, which originally covered Ashington, Bedlington and Cramlington (hence ABC!)

The first issue was published in December 2008, and we have been delivering results for advertisers ever since! The magazine is viewed as THE go-to publication in the local area, packed with local news stories, events, puzzles and various editorial features, giving ABC an excellent shelf life.

In 2018 we doubled the size of our coverage in South East Northumberland, adding ABC Wansbeck to our portfolio. This means that ABC North now covers Bedlington, Morpeth and Cramlington only, reaching more homes in these areas than any other free magazine.

We reach the sought-after homes in each area, targeting desirable estates, and home to affluent residents with high levels of disposable income, who shop local, are receptive to our free magazine, and many of whom are not on social media.

ABC North is distributed free, bi-monthly, by our own distribution team. Your message goes straight to some of the finest residential homes in the above areas. What’s more, it stays there – ABC North is read and kept until the next edition arrives, working for you long after the publication date.

Trust ABC North – the cost-effective formula that’s worked for hundreds of advertisers for 15 years.


Covering Ashington, Stakeford and Pegswood.

ABC Wansbeck is our newest magazine, launching in the summer of 2018, covering Ashington, Stakeford, Pegswood and North Seaton. Launching ABC Wansbeck allowed us to increase the total circulation of our magazines in South East Northumberland to 25,000 every two months, more than treble that of any other magazine group in the region. 

This means ABC Wansbeck and ABC North deliver up to four times the number of magazines and for less cost than any other local magazine in the area.

Between ABC North and ABC Wansbeck, our magazines cover Morpeth, Cramlington, Bedlington, Ashington, Stakeford and Pegswood, giving your advert unrivalled coverage in these areas.

We target established estates with residents with good disposable income levels and are receptive to print media, many of whom are not on social media. 


Covering Whitley Bay, Whitley Lodge & Monkseaton.

ABC South Whitley Bay launched in 2009 and reaches tens of thousands of residents in Whitley Bay, Whitley Lodge and Monkseaton. We deliver to thousands of highly sought-after residential homes, targeting affluent residents who shop local, have high disposable income levels, and are receptive to our free magazine, many of whom are not on social media.

We ensure ABC is packed with the latest local news stories, local business features, what’s on, events, and many more aspirational editorial articles. We include more local editorial features in every edition than any other magazine in North Tyneside, meaning ABC is viewed as THE go-to magazine for North Tyneside.

Because of its extensive editorial content, ABC South is read and kept, working for you long after publication.  Trust ABC Whitley Bay – the cost-effective and trusted advertising platform that has worked for hundreds of advertisers for 15 years.


Covering North Shields, Tynemouth and Royal Quays.

ABC South runs alongside the Whitley Bay edition, meaning both magazines combined are delivered to over 20,000 homes and businesses every two months. Due to massive demand from customers and local residents contacting us to ask if they can also receive a copy of ABC in 2020, we DOUBLED the number of copies of ABC in North Tyneside. 

ABC South targets affluent residents in these areas, who are receptive to our local magazine, trust that the advertisers in the publication are of a good standard, and many of whom are not on social media. As with all of our publications, ABC South North Shields is delivered by our own in-house distribution team, meaning we know exactly where every copy goes and ensure we are targeting the estates which will give you the best chance of a response to your advertising. Trust ABC South – the magazine that reaches more homes locally than any other.
