I'm really pleased with the response we've had from our first advert.  Nearly all of the enquiries we've had have turned into customers as they're good quality leads from customers who our service is perfect for.

The focus magazines  adverts have really worked for us, on top of that I have been impressed with the high level of service I receive from Karen.

The response has been terrific, I will continue to advertise with you and I'll go for the next Brackley one too!

Focus has proven to be a consistent, reliable, and cost-effective form of advertising. Mandy helped with great suggestions for my initial advert, which has been used ever since, and helped me to grow my client base. It is clear from my clients that many of them have found me through the Focus advert, showing that not only is the magazine retained by many households, but is also well read.

Once again, your promoting our Stamp Fair and Valuation Day has resulted in a record number of appointments being made, far in excess of any other local advertising.

Thank you so much

After placing an advert within the Focus Magazine I have had a really good response.

February 2018 Half Term at Stowe National Trust

A fun family day out

Kick off the winter blues and escape with your family this half-term. Step into a world of trails and outdoor fun at National Trust Stowe and burn your kids' pent up energy. 


Throughout half-term pick up the Women of Stowe trail and discover hidden stories as you have your own adventure around the garden. From a warrior knight to an all-powerful goddess, pick up a guide and see what you can find out. The trail is free of charge and available daily, 10-18 February 10am-5pm.


There’s plenty of opportunity to explore nature with a free family explorer guide. Every month there’s a different theme for your family to enjoy whilst having a go at some of the ‘50 Things’ to see and do before you’re 11 ¾. Borrow a family explorer guide when you arrive or download it from the website and bring it with you. In February it’s nature trackers; which animal tracks can you spy in the garden? Can you tell the difference between an otter and a fox? Available daily throughout the month.


If you really want to get wild this half-term book to join the ‘Wild Wednesday: Feathery friends’ session. Join the Wild Team to learn more about our feathery friends, collect your own bird spotting guide and make a bird feeder to take home. How many birds will you spot? Receive a sticker for completing one of our '50 Things' - go bird watching, and take home your own '50 Things' scrapbook. The session runs on Wednesday 14 February, 10.30am-12noon. £2 per child (booking essential).


Normal admission applies to the gardens, helping us to restore them back to their eighteenth-century glory and keeping them alive for ever, for everyone. Family tickets are great value admitting up to three children, whilst there are options to choose a one or two adult family ticket. Under 5’s go free. Become a member and you can visit us and over 500 other special places as often as you like throughout the year from as little as £5.40 a month. Our welcome team at our visitor centre are on hand to help with any questions if you’d like to become a member, or to find out more about family activities.
