What our readers think…

“I absolutely love your magazine!  It has become part of my life from buying a wedding present last week (Bellwoods) to where to take my husband for his birthday (ghetto golf) not to mention the cooking inspiration, country walks, ideas for a night out or brunch or a cultural experience or a good book to read – you are totally amazing at what you do – curating the best of the North East and making life so much easier and more interesting for your readers – you really have your finger on the pulse!  And all while confirming that sisters are doing it for themselves – and how! Thank you so much you have enriched my life!” – Fran

So, how could we work together?

Because we’re digital and an innovative team, we can pretty much make anything happen. But here are some examples:


A Q&A style interview where we can really get to know you and your business. Easy to digest and written in HLN’s signature style.



A full-length feature, where we can really get under the skin of a business, venue, topic or product. These are a great way to showcase all of your marketing messages and USPs.


Lust List Takeover 

A short write-up on the business, with ‘Editor’s Picks’ of between 10-15 products. Featured on our website, with six products directly linked from our Sunday Supplement email to your online shop. 


Here’s what some of our advertisers have to say…

“It’s been great collaborating with the High Life North team – fantastic people who really support our Cake Stories through their quality output. We run several features with HLN all of which have looked great and generated plenty of engagement and strong results.” – Ben & Hannah, Cake Stories

“We love working with Rosie, Laura and the team at High Life North. Their audience is perfectly aligned with our band and they have fantastic, creative ideas on how we can make the most of our media spend. We’ve seen some great results from our recent activity and are looking forward to working with them more in the future.” – Sarah Baines, Marketing Manager at Grantley Hall

“Customers often mention that they’ve found us through a HLN feature, and our website analytics tell us that the HLN website is always in the top 5 sources of click-through traffic to our website (even months after a paid feature) which is amazing. We receive ongoing promotion and genuine support from HLN which is fantastic for a small local business like ours.” – Lauren Wedderburn, SomethingGood

“It’s been great – most importantly we’ve seen an increased number of enquiries to the sales team, following the pieces High Life North published featuring Steenbergs Yard and life in the Ouseburn. This undoubtedly helped them to get reservations over the line. But also more generally, the pieces really helped us increase our social media following and bring our news page to life – and that engaging content has been really valuable.” – Lowri Bond, Steenbergs Yard

“When I met Beth and the girls at my event they were so fresh, friendly, current and great to work with.  They knew instantly what they needed to do to showcase the salon the best they could.  The images I received from Beth were amazing.  The editorial that Rachael wrote was fantastic.  When I read this out to the brand they said it was “one of, if not the best, they’d ever read.” We both said the way it was written was so exciting and interesting to read. Beth has kept in touch with me throughout and I have enjoyed seeing the way they have presented my salon. They have really captured the personality of my business and team, friendly and welcoming but professional.  I 100% made the best decision choosing High Life North.  – Haley Carr, Guinot Salon Gosforth

“We can’t thank Rosie and the team at HLN enough. Within hours we had increased our Instagram following by 9%. The platform reached our target audience perfectly. We have already seen voucher and ticket sales off the back of the feature. We look forward to working with the team again in the future” – Triple A Food Tours
