Local ents site relaunches ahead of planned New Year expansion

An award-winning online local entertainments platform has relaunched with a new responsive website.

Cheltenham-based has unveiled the new look site, which features a “strong use of imagery, stylish fonts and a refined wireframe specific to covering arts, entertainment and leisure.”

SoGlos was launched in 2007 by journalists Michelle Fyrne and James Fyrne, covering arts, entertainment and leisure in Gloucestershire.

It now reaches almost 100,000 monthly unique readers, 30,000 weekly email newsletter subscribers and in excess of 30,000 social media followers.

In January the company launched a new wedding website, and it is hoped the ‘So’ brand will now be expanded into new areas from 2016.

Said Michelle: “While there are numerous online entertainment platforms in the UK, from the smallest hyperlocals to national websites from the largest publishing houses, we’ve spent eight years honing a completely tailor made solution for readers and advertisers which is unrivalled.”

The new responsive platform includes a bespoke content management system allowing journalists to publish and manage content and images to the site, as well as social media feeds built into the new template.

    Ents directories in local and regional papers are dreadful. I find it impossible to find a decent list of whats to do and where to go. My local JP site has a dedicated ents person located miles away at the regional hub. Useless. I’d say just a fraction of events are listed. This is what the industry needs to shake it up a bit.
