Metro


Metro is a publishing phenomenon. The paper was launched in March 1999 as a free, colour newspaper for morning commuters.

At first it was only available in London, but now commuters in 50 UK cities can pick up a free copy of Metro as they travel to work in the morning. Every weekday morning some 1.3 million copies are distributed across the UK making Metro the world’s largest free newspaper and the third biggest newspaper in the UK.

Metro is a perfect mix of national and international news wrapped around local information – entertainment previews, listings, weather and travel.

Metro’s news stories are tightly written, so that the reader can take in all the key facts quickly. And Metro has no political axe to grind.

Metro is distributed in Bath, Birmingham, Brighton, Bristol, Cardiff, Derby, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Leeds, Leicester, Liverpool, London, Manchester, Nottingham, Newcastle and Sheffield.

At Metro.co.uk you can interact with Metro and the 8.2m million unique visitors, of which 4.2m are from the UK, who visit the website each month (Omniture, May 2011).

As well as giving you a 24-hour rolling news and sport service, Metro.co.uk also has all the latest showbiz gossip, the funniest and oddest stories from around the world in Weird, the latest Film, TV and Music news and reviews, as well as Tech and Gaming content.

We bring you some of your favourite sections from the paper – such as 60 Second Interviews – and you’ll also find lots of Metro competitions with great prizes on offer, the chance to interact with us and much, much more.

Membership requirements are to attend a minimum of three events a year, but we seek members who would like to do more than that – to join a committee, attend other events – to really get involved in the club to get the most out of it.

Most events are for members and their guests only but we also run events each year for younger, up and coming members of the marketing communications industries. These are publicised here on our website and usually also in relevant trade magazines.
