Whats On/Days Out
The Yorkshire Herald & Advertiser recognizes that families in the UK are always looking for something new and something exciting to try. Our ‘What’s On’ Features have become increasingly popular over the years. We ask our readers; “So you’re trying to plan another day out for the whole family, but just aren’t sure where to start?” And then naturally, we give them some ideas!
Our advertisers range from smaller, more localized attractions or tourist hot spots around Yorkshire through to the bigger, national theatres, theme-parks, castles and events.
A favourite amongst readers have always been the the more subtle atmosphere and educational aspect of the more local parks, farms, zoos and aquariums. Everyone likes a trip to the Zoo – today it’s more about conserving our world wild life and children can learn about the caring aspect, as well as have a super day out. In addition to featuring numerous zoos scattered throughout the UK – there have been plenty of specialized wild life centres specialising in small animals, birds, insects and butterflies that have benefited from their feature in the ‘Yorkshire Herald & Advertiser’.
One successful feature we ran recently for example was;
“For those who what a change why not visit an exhibition or museum?”
We focused here on the fact that ‘Museums are no longer those stuffy places to visit you might remember when you were younger; instead they now provide hands-on experiences for even the youngest children and cater for all types of genres.’ We explained to readers that;
‘Whether its dinosaurs, a celebrity or certain time period that you and your family are interested, if you look hard enough there is certain to be a specialist exhibition in a museum somewhere to cater for your desires.’ The advertisers featured in this piece commented after the feature that the response was even better than predicted. Below are some of our regular advertisers who have all benefited from the Yorkshire Herald & Advertiser marketing their business and their products to the numerous couples, families and groups that pick up our publication.
