Burnley Bondholders in partnership with Burnley Council are delighted to announce the release of the 2018 Burnley Lifestyle Magazine.
30,000 copies of the 2018 magazine rolled off the presses last week ready for distribution across the UK, showcasing this thriving Lancashire town.
Copies of the popular magazine, which includes a mix of news, features, event listings and exclusive interviews, will be available for local pick-up and across the region in key footfall areas including Manchester’s Victoria and Piccadilly railway stations, and Manchester Airport. The magazine is also distributed to hotels, restaurants, Tourist Information Centres busy motorway stop off points, and key visitor attraction destinations throughout the UK, to promote the lifestyle offer in the town.
PR & Marketing Officer for Burnley’s Brand Team, Joanne Etherington said: “This year’s magazine focuses very much on Burnley’s thriving arts and culture scene, featuring the fabulous work of local designers, photographers and artists.
“Our main feature showcases emerging local textile designer Becca Who and her stunning clothing and accessories range inspired by Burnley’s surrounding countryside and history, with the fashion shoot set in the historic setting of Burnley’s Towneley Hall & Museum.
“We are also delighted to include a special photography feature, by passionate local film photographer Daniel Scanlin, commemorating the WW1 Centenary, with the story behind Burnley’s love of the French Liqueur, Bénédictine.”
Adding: “Our aim is to showcase what is special about this thriving Lancashire town – our fabulous housing and lifestyle offer, our stunning countryside, our arts and culture offer – but most of all our friendly welcome, which was recently acknowledged with the accolade of being named the friendliest place in the UK.
“Readers will get a real feel from the features within the magazine just how passionate people are about the place, and the special place it has in people’s hearts, and we’re delighted to include an interview with the man of the moment Sean Dyche, Manager of Burnley Football Club.”
“The magazine is part funded by advertising and produced as part of the Burnley Bondholder Brand campaign, to promote all the positive aspects of Burnley, to attract new visitors, new investors, new residents, and is used as a recruitment aid for businesses looking to recruit from outside the area. It is also a wonderful local pride publication, with many local residents happy to see the positive attributes of their home town showcased in the magazine.”
Several of the town’s attractions have put Burnley firmly on the national and global tourism map. It is home to the global award winning spa – The Woodland Spa at Crow Wood; one of Britain’s top 21st century landmarks Singing Ringing Tree (a wind powered steel structure which is a huge hit with visitors); and two of Lancashire’s top visitors attractions, Happa and the Burnley Mechanics, which you can read more about in the magazine.
