TESTIMONIALS

Chris Rushby Jarrolds Book Buyer

The SHHHH Guide is a really easy book to recommend, both to visitors and locals alike. There are so many entries for venues and businesses we already know and trust that it’s easy to be confident the ones we don’t know are going to be worth a try too. The previous edition was good, but the new one is a real step up in quality and breadth of coverage.

CORE AIMS

Purpose CELEBRATING INDEPENDENT BUSINESSES AND EMERGING CREATIVES SINCE 2012.

Our core aims are to celebrate this ever-growing independent scene and to capture the community atmosphere across 300+ beautifully designed pages ­— helping both newcomers and locals discover Norwich’s independent businesses.

2000 MONTHLY VISITS


Universities, Freshers and Open Days In previous years, both NUA and UEA have picked up on the value of our guide, using it as a tool to encourage students to choose to study in Norwich by handing them out to prospective students both nationally and internationally. We retain a good relationship with both major universities and strive to get the guides into the hands of students when they arrive here through open days, freshers fairs and events.

Bookshops and Stockists Everyone that features within the guide counts as a stockist. The sales of the guide have performed extremely well in many outlets across the city. Some of our best selling stores include:

TESTIMONIALS

Professor John Last OBE Vice-Chancellor of Norwich University of the Arts

The SHHHH Guide gives students particularly those arriving in Norwich for the first time — an invaluable insight into the hidden treasures they’ll find in the city. It’s become a go-to publication for anyone looking for pointers about Norwich’s independent eateries, cultural highlights and hang-outs. Well-written, beautifully designed, it’s an essential read — a highly recommended guide.

CIRCULATION

Sharing’s Caring OUR RESEARCH REVEALED THAT EVERY GUIDE IS SHARED WITH AN AVERAGE OF AT LEAST FIVE FRIENDS OR FAMILY MEMBERS.

Our overall readership is expected to reach in excess of 50,000 readers in 2019. It’s a book that is designed to last and be used daily, shared with friends and family, kept out on the coffee table or to be carried in your bag. This, along with a constantly refreshing digital output, means our content has real reach and a significant impact.

TESTIMONIALS

Joe Assistant at The Book Hive

The Norwich SHHHH City Guide has been a big hit at the Book Hive. Sam and the team have been a breeze to collaborate with, and to date, we’ve sold over 100 copies. At a number of points throughout the summer, the guide has actually been at the top of our weekly sales charts. And as a bonus, the guide has been a real conversation starter with the community — tourists and locals alike. We’ve been really chuffed with this performance and proud to have the publication on our shelves.

TESTIMONIALS

Conor & Rocio Owners of Flint

It was a real pleasure working with the SHHHH team. They have a really good understanding of Norwich and what it has to offer. What attracted me to the Guide was the layout and design which was really refreshing.

Brick Pizza

Ancestors Coffee

IF you’re looking for good pizza, then look no further than Brick! With a relaxed atmosphere, great soundtracks and a touch of 80’s nostalgia in the decor, it ticks all the boxes. Brick serves up a modern, casual spin on Neapolitan pizza, cooked in a wood-fired oven so it will always have that deliciously thin base and puffy edge. We recommend trying their classic Margherita, but with such a wide range of toppings . • initials

NORWICH has a vibrant coffee scene and one might worry about any new businesses trying to make an impact in this field. Ancestors should have no such worries, though, as in a relatively short period of time they have already won plenty of accolades. The space is also available to rent and they hold regular tasting and training courses, for those who want to deepen with their coffee knowledge. • initials

TESTIMONIALS

Chris Gribble Chief Executive of the National Centre for Writing

Our involvement with the SHHHH Guide was a no-brainer… a beautiful book which represents the independent spirit of Norwich and the many stories found within it. We are stocking copies in our Writers’ and Translators’ Residency Cottage, located on the Dragon Hall campus, so that visitors from across the world have an immediate resource for food, drink, shopping and culture.

TESTIMONIALS

Bobby Burrage Creative director of The Click

When travelling to meet with new clients, I’m always armed with a copy of the Norwich Guide. I think it’s the perfect way to proudly share the environment and city in which we choose to live and work in. Not only is it a nice gift, it’s also a great conversation piece.
