All change for Harrogate Advertiser

editorial image

THIS week marks the very last Harrogate Advertiser in a broadsheet format, and the start of a new era on Thursday when we relaunch the newspaper in a compact format.

Readers and advertisers have told us in our market research they would prefer an easier-to-handle newspaper in a compact format. We know that readers will also value an earlier publication day, so the new look newspaper will be published a day early, on Thursday.

The newspapers will also benefit from fresh new designs, giving a modern feel, but still including all the local content we know our readers value.

Ackrill Media Group editor Jean MacQuarrie said: “It’s hugely exciting and we are delighted to launch our new compact newspaper next Thursday. The designs look fabulous, and the news pages are visually attractive and easy to read.”

A number of improvements have also been to the website and there will be far more content on line, better comment functionality and new displays for photographs.

Jean said: “These are really exciting times for the Harrogate Advertiser and our website, and we hope readers and advertisers will enjoy what is a fantastic new product with some great additional features.”

l We’ll be on the streets of Harrogate next Thursday to show off our new newspaper, and we want your comments on the new look Advertiser. Email the editor at, call her on 01423 564321 or write to her 1 Cardale Park, Harrogate, HG3 1RZ
