About TownTalk

What is TownTalk?

TownTalk is a guide to towns and cities throughout the UK. We were set up to help towns to re-establish themselves at the heart of the communities they serve, helping local retailers, local producers and local people.

TownTalk sites are dedicated to specific towns, carrying detailed up to date information about local news, events and businesses, including:

  • What's On Events Guide
  • Latest News from your Area
  • Shopping and Business Directory
  • Special Offers
  • Local Job Vacancies

Members of the public can add their own news and events by registering and will be published immediately. Businesses can add their own details which we will then confirm. The sites are effectively social networking sites for residents and businesses; putting local communities in touch with one another.


We work closely with Town Centre Managers, Town Partnerships, Chambers of Commerce and Event Organisers to promote the towns and to remind people about the little gems that they have right under their noses!

Town centres are re-establishing themselves as vibrant, exciting places to live, work and socialise. There are always plenty of things to do, just check out your local TownTalk site to fin out more.


TownTalk has had more than £1.5 million invested in the network, mainly from the public sector, including the European Regional Development Fund, the London Development Agency and local authorities.

Increasingly, event organisers and businesses are valuing the use of our sites as a means to advertise their products and services. Thanks to sponsorship and advertising revenue, the network has established itself as a significant online publisher, attracting over 1 million unique visitors every month.
