#1 Lifestyle Magazine

Why Mayhem!?

Mayhem! is the number one free glossy culture and lifestyle magazine distributed across Portsmouth and the surrounding areas. With a wide audience we get a tremendous response to advertising both local and national. We equal the quality in production and content to that of other news-stand titles, and because we’re giving it away free, our readers can’t get enough and our advertisers are amazed. We distribute to more than 500 locations and give people the choice to pick us up.

Quite unlike many other free publications, we pride ourselves on having equal split of advertising to quality entertaining editorial. This ensures our readers engage with your message more easily and don’t feel bombarded by a magazine full of just advertising. Mayhem! isn’t just another free booklet that you find on your doormat. Feedback is telling us people are going out of their way to seek Mayhem! Magazine each month and it’s fast becoming people’s number one read over other monthly subscriptions, and what’s more, they’re keeping it, which means your advertising can be seen not just days or weeks after the issue date, but months!

We target people with a disposable income, irrespective of age or gender, and it’s wonderfully effective. The magazine has seen enormous success and those who have committed to us have enjoyed a fantastic response to their campaigns.

10,000 magazines across Portsmouth and the surrounding areas bi-monthly with back issues online to a further national readership!
