Celebrating over a decade of Oracle!

In September 2005 the Thorpe Bay Oracle launched, with Leigh-on-Sea Oracle a year later. Both these local high-quality glossy magazine titles have become a necessary read for the most affluent areas in Southend.

Creating a loyal readership of over 35,000 in a remarkably short time, Oracle Publications are a highly-effective and economic way to target those high-value customers.

Oracle magazines are published monthly, and distributed (circa the first weekend of each month) FREE to 14,000 households, in some of the most prestigious areas of Southend. They are also circulated online to an ever-increasing readership.
