Welcome to our website www.beatmagazine.ca. Please take a look around.
Our ONLINE FEATURES page has content not found in The Beat Magazine, including The Beat Events Calendar (a free monthly listing of events taking place in and around London), What's On? (Previews of coming events in and around London), Rants & Raves (the latest Reviews of local Theatre, Music, Visual Arts, Film and written and spoken Words), DISHing with Donald (where well-known theatre personality Donald D’Haene trades quips with leading figures in London’s arts community) and Feature Posts (The Beat’s catch-all for other online-only content).
You also have a chance to win free tickets to selected arts events and learn more about special promotions exclusive to beatmagazine.ca readers at Contests and Promotions.
Past issues of The Beat can be accessed on our ARCHIVES page, while the current copy is now available online in an easy-to read format – so you never have to miss another month of exciting arts news!
This Week At A Glance, found on our HOME page, is a weekly listing of our advertisers' events in the week to come.
If you’d like to ADVERTISE or CONTACT The Beat Magazine, that information is here too. And we’ve also added LINKS to hook you up with arts organizations in London and beyond.
We hope you like our new look, created by The Beat’s talented graphic designer Lionel Morise, and encourage you to let us know what you think about The Beat Magazine and beatmagazine.ca.
