About The Village: In print and online
The Village is a very popular and highly regarded monthly magazine serving the thriving and beautiful north Worcestershire countryside between Bromsgrove, Birmingham, Solihull and Redditch.
The area is home to many people who work in the conurbations, but enjoy life in and around the villages that inspire the magazine, as well as the people whose families have lived here for generations.
The Village was launched in October 1998 by a group of journalists who brought many years of experience on national and regional newspapers to the production of a magazine that really matters to its readers – people who care about what is happening around them.
We now print just over 10,000 copies of each issue in a modern B5 format, with almost all of these delivered by our own teams of distributors to homes across the area. Some are available at village shops and other outlets for readers to pick up, while the remainder are delivered by the Royal Mail to subscribers.
People have grown over the years to love getting their copy of The Village and demand for it is growing all the time.
The magazine is normally published monthly, 12 times a year, although this frequency has been disrupted by the covid pandemic. Please check with the team for the current publication schedule.
