The Evening Standard is the latest newspaper to join the listings war,
with a new A5 listings magazine.
Hot Tickets will be included with the paper’s Friday magazine, ES.
The new publication, which looks similar to The Observer’s preview
guide, will be launched tomorrow (Friday). Nicola Jeal, associate editor
of the Standard, denied the two guides would have a similar content,
insisting Hot Tickets was ‘aimed at a much broader audience’.It will
cover the main events in London, provide information on food and travel
and include a seven-day TV and radio guide.
