The Purbeck Gazette is a free monthly magazine covering local news, events, business, arts, entertainment, sport, health, environment and just about everything else. Every month, we print 20,000 copies (80 pages, A4) - and they all go! We also publish the entire magazine on this website in electronic format (see Latest Issue).


The magazine is widely read throughout south Dorset; research suggests that although 20,000 copies are printed, readership is in fact in the order of 50,000. That's a lot of people, and includes the working resident community, the retired population, the second-home owners and a huge number of tourists, many of whom visit all year round.

Want to be kept up to date with the latest news and much more? Then why not:


We believe that advertising in the Purbeck Gazette represents the very best value for money available in our distribution area.

If you'd like to advertise with us, please see our online booking system (click on shop) for details of ad sizes, costs and discounts. You can then either book your space online, or call us on 01929 424239 during office hours.

If you need help, have questions, or are unsure what will work best for your business, please contact us. We can offer you advice on how to make your business a success by helping you decide on an advertising budget & plan for the year ahead, and assist you with decisions regarding advert size and content.


If you live outside our delivery area, you don't have to go without your Purbeck Gazette! We appreciate that even though the entire publication is available for you to read on this website, many of you would rather have a 'real' one.

So, for a modest sum, one of our dedicated and delightful helpers will pop a copy in an envelope and post it to you as soon as it's available.
