Frequently Asked Questions?

Want to know something about Knaresborough Now?

How often does Knaresborough Now come out?

Every month – in the first week of each month (or often in the last 2 days of the previous month)

How many copies of Knaresborough Now are published?

Over 6,000 copies every month. Over 5,500 of these are distributed to homes and businesses – the remainder are available around Knaresborough.

Why don’t I get a copy delivered every month?

Each issue covers 2 months so that we can alternate between two delivery areas (delivering to approximately 12,000 homes and businesses every 2 months). This means that you should get a copy through your door every other month.

What if I wish to pick up a copy of Knaresborough Now in the months that I don’t get a copy delivered?

You can pick up a copy from one of our many outlets around town. We have recently increased our publication numbers to meet this demand. Copies are available from The Post Office, Knaresborough House, The Library, Tourist Information, McQueen’s Coffee Shop, Marigolds, Caffe Nero, Dawn til Dusk, Lavender Tearooms, Subway, Wild Orchid, Knaresborough Swimming Pool, doctors surgeries and other places around our town.

Alternatively, you can now see the current issue on our website Knaresborough Now! – previous issues are due to be added soon!
