The Sunday Times Scotland has partnered with The List to launch a new art and culture magazine for Scotland.
Launching this Sunday (3 July) the fortnightly listings guide will be free with The Sunday Times Scotland and will cover topics spanning entertainment, theatre, comedy and culture as well as exclusive reviews and interviews.
The first issue of the 16 page magazine will focus on the Edinburgh Jazz & Blues Festival, which kicks off the city’s festival season, and features acclaimed drummer Bryan Carter on the cover.
Each issue will highlight the top 10 national events, focusing on the best of arts and culture for that fortnight. It will also contain dedicated sections for days out, music, theatre, visual art, comedy and books.
Sunday Times Scotland editor, Jason Allardyce, said the partnership would “help ensure we are the number one place for culture, as well as news, sport and current affairs in Scotland”.
Richard Bogie, News Scotland general manager, said: “We’re confident that its appeal will not only meet the needs of our many culture-orientated readers but will also attract a whole new audience. This new addition is yet another example of our ongoing commitment and investment in delivering top news, opinion sport and culture for our Scottish audience."
List editor, Yasmin Sulaiman, added: “It’s always been our mission at The List to increase the depth and breadth of coverage of Scotland’s vibrant arts and entertainment scene. This compelling opportunity to work with The Sunday Times Scotland helps us do just that. We will profile exciting events across the country.”
The launch is being supported by a five figure sum multi-platform campaign across print, social, mobile and radio.
