Newcastle Sparkles features an inspiring mix of lifestyle news, features and interviews with a Newcastle or wider North East focus. If you have an exciting news story or event coming up that you think local readers simply must know about, pop all the details in an email to:


From 2020 onwards, at least 75% of all new content will be classed as independent editorial.

This means at least 3 out of every 4 articles published will consist of original content that's not linked to event invitations, complimentary services or payment by businesses. 

Why? Because Newcastle Sparkles features handpicked lifestyle content that's unique and unbiased, and that you simply won't find anywhere else. And this approach demonstrates a commitment to these values. 


A limited number of advertorial posts are available each month.

If you're a local business and have something newsworthy to share, opportunities include: reviews, interviews, event coverage, social media posts / takeovers, press trips, newsletter content and guest blogging.

To find out more, please get in touch and request the Newcastle Sparkles 2020 media kit.
