We are pretty special

This month 600,000 people read The Tab Leicester. We’re asking if you want to be in on the action.

We’re here for all the best stories in Leicester, from cheesy SU election videos and the scandal of #Bowlinggate to the guy who did his dissertation in forty hours, we cover what you want to read.

Do you crave the power and responsibility of deciding Leicester’s clubbers of the week? Or want to tell your peers the LE1 nights they’re missing out on?

The Tab are always taking on new writers, so if you think you’ve got what it takes, get involved.


You don’t need to have bags of experience to join. You just need to be keen to write and have the ability to not care if you piss a few people off along the way.

If you want to write for us, sign up here and we’ll get you along to the next meeting.

We’re also on the look out for a new editor next year. You’ll be taking weekly meetings to commission quality articles, gain invaluable editorial experience, and be in charge of throwing the best socials you’ve ever been to.


The Tab is expanding more and more each day, with a huge three million readers to please a month.

Here, we don’t censor what you say and we don’t charge you to have a voice. The stories just get told as they are.

Whether you want to uncover more university scandals, or find a scoop that goes national, let us know and we’ll get you on board.
