Falkirk Herald publisher Johnston Press has launched a national online entertainments site which will give users hundreds of listings at their fingertips.

Entitled WOW247, the new site will keep users up to date with what’s on where and what’s on when locally and across the entire UK, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

WOW247 allows people to search a database of over 500,000 events across a whole host of categories, including film, music, theatre, and food and drink.

User can also allow anyone to post a comment, write a review or add their own event.

With over 10 million visitors a month, Johnston Press operates the largest online regional newspaper network in the UK. This audience, coupled to the WOW247 platform, gives promoters an unrivalled opportunity to promote their event in the national and local market.

Paul Napier, group editorial development director, said: “We’ve created WOW247 with the wishes of the audience and the needs of the advertisers clearly in mind. People coming to WOW247 will find a huge, rich database of events which is easy to search and gives all the information anyone could need to take part in a leisure activity.

“On top of that, there will be lots of previews, reviews and opportunities for the audience to share their thoughts on what they’ve seen and enjoyed - or not - as well as publicising their own events.

“It’s also the first website we’ve created to give a first-rate experience on whatever device is used, so WOW247 is great on smartphones, on tablets, on laptops and on desktops.”
