Regional News is a key part of the cultural infrastructure in the Wellington region: it is the ‘go-to’ publication for information about all upcoming arts and cultural events. Each publication highlights and showcases the rich diversity of culture on offer, from the large to the small.
– Kirsten Mason, general manager, Orchestra Wellington
Regional News plays a hugely valuable role in the Wellington and Aotearoa arts industry, as an integral media publication that gives Wellington key access to arts interviews, news, and information. There is very little media throughout the country, especially in Wellington, which covers arts news, and Regional News have always been hugely supportive of the arts community.
– Michelle Lafferty, director, Elephant Publicity
No other local publication devotes as significant amount of space to the arts as Regional News. Wellington is the cultural capital of New Zealand and this newspaper truly reflects that. It is a vital part of Wellington’s arts and journalistic ecology.
– Salesi Le’ota, publications and events coordinator, Playmarket
Thanks for all the work you're constantly doing for the arts community in Wellington – doesn't go unnoticed!
– Lydia Zanetti, Zanetti Productions
Thank you Maddi for all you, Frances, and Regional News do for me and the Wellington arts scene! Truly awesome.
– Colleen McColl, publicist
Let us congratulate you on a great publication. Nowhere else out there are the arts so widely and competently covered.
– Heather and Richard, readers from Point Howard
Regional News is a great asset for the arts in Wellington. They include an entire page of visual arts coverage in each issue (which I'm sure you'll know is rare for a newspaper).
– Simon Gennard, communications and publications manager, Enjoy Contemporary Art Space.
Congrats to Regional News for being singularly the best all round summary of what's going on in the region, by far.
– Andrew, president, Wellington Bluegrass Society
I received my first booking from this advert totalling $1400. A huge thank you!
– Robin, Red Tussock Motel
The what’s on pages are the first that I read whenever I receive your newspaper and influence my choice of entertainment each month.
– Margaret, committee member, festival singers
Regional News is becoming miles away the best organ for information about local events… You have served us – and the Hutt Valley community very well!
– Murray Presland, president, Chamber Music Hutt Valley
I’m sitting here with my coffee reading your latest terrific R News. Both my husband and I look forward to each edition. It is packed full of interesting, informative and educational articles not only local but national too.
