LoveEast is a stylish A5 publication distributed every other month and free of charge to 12,000 households, shops, cafés and businesses within the E9, E8, E6, E5, E3, E2, E13 and E20 areas. Our readership is between 25,000 and 30,000.
The magazine began in March 2014 as E9 Magazine and re-branded as LoveEast in September 2015 in order to expand its reach to a wider East London readership. In that time, it has gone from strength to strength and is now a recognised and established part of the East London community.
What makes us different
The magazine is packed with interesting editorial that is relevant to residents who live in East London, and we adhere to the notion that ‘content is king and design is queen’. You will find essential information about what’s on, such as music, sports, family activities and arts events, as well as restaurant reviews, recipes, history and so much more. We also have regular columns dealing with wellness, fitness, food & drink and our list of experts is growing.
Why it’s good for local businesses
LoveEast provides an effective advertising platform for the East London business community. Our colourful and stylish design makes us stand out from the crowd, and our compact format means that it’s more likely to be taken home from one of our many stockists. Our content is interesting and relevant and people look forward to receiving and reading it. Our popular What’s On pages encourage people to keep the magazine as a handy guide for the weeks ahead and it’s referred to often.
In addition to relevant content, its compact size, ease of reference and cost-effective ad rates, the magazine has a strong visual impact and, unlike many other publications, there is never any advertising on the cover. We also publish all articles and advertorials for each edition on our website, loveeast.london.
We distribute free copies directly through the letterbox to 9,830 homes in the Victoria Park area and the roads around Chatsworth Road, south to Tredegar Square, and to the streets north, east and west of London Fields. A further 1,730 copies are delivered to various shops, cafés, Doctor surgeries and businesses in Victoria Park village, Broadway Market, Roman Road, Well Street, Hackney Wick, Chatsworth Road, Walthamstow Village, Forest Gate, Plaistow, Upton Park, East Ham, Leytonstone & Leyton and Wanstead High Street. A full list of stockists can be found on our website.
Media partnership with East London Radio
There is strong evidence that local services are preferred by the majority of the UK population, and we’re proud to play a part in bringing our East London community even closer together by providing an invaluable source of information about local businesses and services.
With that in mind, East London Radio and LoveEast Magazine have joined together as exclusive media partners to promote all that’s great about East London. Between us, we’ve got East London covered, reaching thousands of people across seven boroughs via a wide range of media, including print, on air, on social media and on the web.
In partnership with East London Radio, we’ve recently launched myeastlondon.online (linked as the ‘What’s On’ page under the ‘Lifestyle’ tab on the Loveeast.london website). myeastlondon.online hosts a calendar where events can be uploaded directly for free, and is fast becoming a hub for East Londoners. We will soon be adding a (paid for) Business Directory, an easily accessible means for East Londoners to locate businesses and servces in their area.

A pretty, compact, local, free and more importantly, real magazine made by an independent and professional editor with a good appeal to a wide range of readers.
