Hey, people of the UK! Subscribe to Loud And Quiet and gift a friend 3 months for free

You're a good friend

In March we relaunched Loud And Quiet magazine in a new, glossy format and new design. David Byrne was on the cover. We wouldn’t shut up about it.

Now we’re introducing a new subscription scheme for UK readers.

What we found last month was that the in-store issues got picked up even quicker than usual.

We’ve always offered subscriptions but haven’t made much of that, ultimately because we were aware that L&Q was a free newspaper for so many years. Now that it feels a lot more substantial – and might well prove harder to find – we’re not so embarrassed about seeing if we can help fund the magazine with subscriber packages.

So let us introduce our new 3 For Free scheme, where UK subscriptions (which cost an unbelievably reasonable £35) will now come with 3 month’s free for a friend of your choice.

There’s one big rule, really – your mate’s address needs to be in the UK. We’ve done the maths and it’s the only we won’t end up paying you to subscribe.

Visit our subscribe page and simply select the UK region. Once you’ve subscribed we’ll be in touch right away for you to let us know who you are gifting our next 3 issues to. That’s it! Your issues will then be dispatched.

Of course, if you’re still down for the hustle and picking up a copy in-store, or if you prefer to just order odd issues from our magazine page, we respect that. Either way we hope you continue to enjoy what we’re putting together in the updated version of Loud And Quiet.

Support Loud And Quiet from £3 per month and we'll post you our next 9 magazines

As all of us are constantly reminded, it’s getting harder for independent publishers to stay in business, which applies to Loud And Quiet more now than ever, 14 years after we first started printing a magazine that we’ve always given away for free.

Having thought about the best way to support the costs of what we do (the printing and server fees, the podcast and video production costs etc.) we’d like to ask our readers who really enjoy what we do to subscribe to our next 9 issues over the next 12 months. The cheapest we can afford to do this for is a recurring payment of £3 per month for UK subscribers. If you really start to hate it you can cancel at any time. The same goes for European subscriptions (£6 per month) and the rest of the world (£8 per month).

It’s not just a donation – you’ll receive a physical copy of our magazine through your door, and some extra perks detailed on our subscribe page. Digital subscriptions are available worldwide for £15 per year. We hope you consider this a good deal and the best way to keep Loud And Quiet in your life without its content, independence or existence suffering.
