A recent survey conducted by a subsidiary of Colmar Brunton shows Capital Times readership is now 62,000 weekly.
There is consistently high awareness across the 21 – 59 age groups, both male and female and especially among professionals and managers (who have higher disposable incomes).
Fran Cole of the Lighthouse Cinema in Upper Hutt advised "I get just as much response from Capital Times as I was from other papers for half the price."
And reader Graeme Reid, one of us who now lives in Australia "I digested the writings of Capital Times and decided the contents were so enjoyable that you folks deserve a letter of congratulations."
We are the eyes and ears for inner Wellington on our city's theatre, arts, and entertainment scene.
Whatever is happening in the city, a new show, a book launch, a sporting event, a dance rave, council elections, a new band, or a new business opening, Capital Times has the information. We've had it for 36 years now.
Capital Times is published weekly on Wednesdays. It is home delivered to inner city letterboxes in Oriental Bay, Thorndon, Kelburn, Mt Victoria and Roseneath. It is also distributed to cafes, retailers, and entertainment and recreation venues throughout the city and suburbs.
Commuters find it at the Wellington Railway Station, new arrivals pick it up at Wellington Airport, and it's read by visitors at all the inner city hotels and motels.
We are an easy way for advertisers to reach Wellingtonians and visitors to the capital.
