LocalOkel.com launches into the UK destinations and venues market with a free community noticeboard including local activity search service for locals and visitors to your area.
The aim of LocalOkel.com is simple – to let everyone know where to go and what’s going on in their local area. Whether it’s a museum, tourist attraction, cinema or farm, plays, gigs, festivals, street markets or even poetry reading classes, a keep fit class or village fete, LocalOkel.com should have it listed.
LocalOkel.com is designed to support local community boards – by reaching a much larger audience who may miss local posters and postcards in shop windows.
It’s free – and easy. If you’ve got an attraction or event to promote just register on LocalOkel.com and you can add any number of events at any number of locations and update your listing as often as you wish.
The search facility allows visitors to search for events by city, category, date or type (attraction, event, club/class).
The concept for LocalOkel.com evolved when founder, John Pleasant, found himself with 24 hours to occupy in Bristol when snow made it impossible to continue his journey back to London. With no local knowledge it was only due to the help of some very friendly locals that he managed to find accommodation, somewhere to eat and something to occupy his time until he could resume his journey. On his return John sat down with a pen and blank sheet of paper and LocalOkel.com was born.
