The Bridlington Free Press
is a weekly tabloid newspaper sold in the town of Bridlington and neighbouring villages
in the Bridlington Bay and Flamborough Head area at the north-eastern tip of the East Riding of Yorkshire.
It’s published by Scarborough-based Yorkshire Regional Newspapers, part of the nationwide group of regional newspaper publishers Johnston Press‘s North division. The editorial offices were formerly in Bridlington, but have now been centralised in Scarborough.
It was founded in 1859. For the first five months of its existence it was The Free Press and Bridlington Illustrated Advertiser. It absorbed the Bridlington Chronicle (founded in 1897 as the Bridlington and Quay Chronicle) in 1954.
A companion weekly freesheet, the Bridlington Gazette & Herald, ceased publication in February 2011 to enable staff to concentrate on producing the Free Press.
It comes out on Thursdays.
