Changes Start with... THE SPARK "at the heart of the alternative west country"

Event ads

Ignite, at the front of The Spark, is our 3 month events section. It starts with 2 or 3 pages of editorial; brightly coloured photos and short text featuring our top picks of what's coming up in Sparkland.

The editorial is followed by our paid-for event ads.

There are 4 kinds of event ads:

• event ads by-the-word • event boxes • event headers • online-only event ads

 

event ads by-the-word (event lineage)

• 90p per word

• chose from 'regular' or 'one-off' events

Regular (or 'on-going') events have the DAY of the week in bold at the top. Show me

One-off event ads have a bold DATE at the top of the ad. Show me

• the day/date is not counted in your wordcount – it's free but MUST be included

• contact details go at the bottom of the ad and appear in bold

• website / email address count as 4 words each 

• no words in CAPITALS, underlined or in italics

• optional disability access code free of charge

 

event boxes

• Event boxes are sold by size and designed by you (or us for a small charge)

• Event boxes may contain colour

• Event boxes must have a date we can list them by

Show me prices and sizes

 

event headers

• £75 for 50 words and your logo/header. Show me

• logo/header can be colour or black & white

• tell us the DAY or DATE so we can order your ad but don't include it in your wordcount

• contact details go at the bottom of the ad and appear in bold

• website / email address count as 4 words each 

• no other bolds, CAPITALS, underlines or italics

• optional disability access code free of charge

 
online-only event ads

• it's also possible to book online-only event ads - they only go on the website, not in the mag, and stay online for 6 weeks max
• great for events with short lead-in times or that've missed our mag deadline
• available for words-only event & classified ads
• the whole process is online - book & pay online & live within 3 Spark working days
