Buckingham Advertiser

The Buckingham Advertiser (in full, the Buckingham & Winslow Advertiser) is a weekly tabloid newspaper sold in the town of Buckingham and surrounding parts of the Aylesbury Vale District in northern Buckinghamshire, including the nearby town of Winslow. (It’s not to be confused with the Bucks Advertiser, which is a newspaper for a different area, or the Buckinghamshire Advertiser, which is a newspaper by a completely different publisher!)

It was first published in 1853 as the Buckingham Advertiser. By mid-1855 it had been renamed the Buckingham Advertiser and Winslow and Brackley Record. It changed name again in 1860 to The Buckingham Advertiser and Free Press, and again in 1885 to the Buckingham Advertiser and North Bucks Free Press. In 1981 it took a more minimalist title as The Advertiser, but assumed its current title in 1984.

It’s the lead title in a series of Advertiser & Review weekly tabloids for the North Bucks/NE Oxon/SW Northants area published by Premier Newspapers, part of Johnston Press‘s South Midlands division; the other titles are the Brackley & Towcester Advertiser and the Bicester Review. All three share a website and editorial offices in Buckingham.

It comes out on Fridays.
