Time Out has begun roll-out of new websites about bars, drink, food and the arts and entertainment for cities across the UK.
After launching websites in Edinburgh and Manchester, more will follow in Leeds, Glasgow, Bristol and Birmingham by early 2015, each with its own local editor curating content from local experts alongside national content.
Time Out has also introduced a blogger network which will run on individual city sites, covering topics including food, drink, music, art, style and entertainment.
Founded in 1968 in London by Tony Elliott, Time Out currently spans 68 cities across 36 countries with a monthly combined audience of over 33 million.
Rob Martin, who has become Time Out Manchester’s digital content producer, said: “With Time Out Manchester we want locals to discover new parts of the city while encouraging new visitors from all over the UK. I’m hugely excited to be involved in unlocking the city’s potential and sharing insider recommendations to showcase the best that this city has to offer.”
Tim Arthur, chief executive of Time Out Group, said: “Time Out has always had its finger on the pulse of what’s new and what’s best, and following our successful city-roll out in the USA it was only natural to do the same in our home country.
“The UK is home to some of the most vibrant and culturally rich cities in the world. We’re incredibly excited about this next phase in Time Out’s evolution. From Manchester to Moscow, from Leeds to Los Angeles, Time Out is inspiring people to make the most of their incredible cities.”
The launch of Time Out Manchester is supported by an outdoor and online campaign across the city’s transport system, cultural hotspots and high traffic areas.
