Welcome to The Alt Entertainer. We’re an online alternative entertainment magazine run by a team of quirky creatives who are passionate about music, lifestyle and the arts.
Our team love nothing more than snapping away at a gig, sharing their thoughts on a show or filming fun times at an expo. We vary in age, from 18-62, so you’re guaranteed variety!
We believe that anyone, with the right kind of motivation and opportunity can develop into a great journalist. That’s why we work with lots of different individuals, who have a wealth of diverse experiences and come from a broad range of backgrounds.
We review, photograph and film the alternative and quirky – from expos, festivals and gigs all the way through to dance, film and sport. We also do the occasional interview – from a unique perspective!
Our creative journalists are the life and soul of The Alt Entertainer and all offer their personality and passion to the publication. Without their video, writing, photography and design skills we wouldn’t be as awesome!
History of The Alt Entertainer
Our Editor Michelle set up The Alt Entertainer in October 2012 during a spell of bad health. It was her passion for the writing that helped to improve her health. On her mission to discover the unexplored alternative and quirky London, Michelle got to work posting reviews of the things she loved.
When she was over the worst of her illness, Michelle decided to recruit some help in the firm of likeminded creatives with an interest in journalism. Since then The Alt Entertainer has continued to expand in both readership and team size.
Once we had a niche, we just kept on growing! This has lead us to build a wider audience and allowed The Alt Entertainer to be enjoyed in many countries including America, the U.K. and Japan.
In 2013 Michelle moved to Dorset where she has continued to recruit more volunteers, from all over the UK (now the US too).
Now that the wheels are spinning, we’re aiming to continue helping creatives to develop their passions, as well as spreading The Alt Entertainer love all around the world!
