About Us

The Weekender is a trusted local independent paper that aims to give local residents and visitors the chance to get the very best from Lambeth, Southwark and the surrounding areas of south London.

With a weekly newspaper title in Lambeth and a monthly in Southwark the Weekender uses traditional and new media platforms to allow readers to know about the brilliant and search out the secret and extraordinary happenings locally.

Owned and run by two local guys since 2002, the Weekender covers all things arts, entertainment, culture and news. Owners Chris Mullany and Kevin Quinn also publish London’s only independent paid-for-paper, the Southwark News from our Bermondsey-based offices.

20,000 copies of Lambeth Weekender are published each week and 35,000 Southwark Weekender each month, making it the largest free distributed paper in both boroughs.

In the evolving digital world, our expertise and our growing team of dedicated journalists are put the very best of the Lambeth and Southwark in the palm of your hand.

And the site is hyper-local, it is literally 16 area websites in one.
