  • March 2020 - So all ready to launch the site after even more development and we get locked down due to Covid-19, seems we just pick bad times, we will definitely be doing this in 2021 no matter what.
  • February 2019 - 24hrs.rocks is decided on being the new name for our national version of this Local site that we will be rolling out soon across the UK.. Some software restrictions mean we have held back launch now till early 2020.
  • March 2018 - Sees the test launch of 24hrs.rocks the local information website for Darwen Live and a full events and Gig Guide for the town. Our aim is to help local businesses by linking everyone in the town in one central point. Darwen was a town we choose as the pilot town due to its vibrant nightlife, restaurants & take away's. Unfortunately, due to the Tragic Loss of Life of Jay Jay in town we decided to suspend our launch after 6 months' work on development. We were actually in town on that night promoting our new site to the town...! We stopped the very next day when we found out as we felt in inappropriate to launch an entertainment site at that time.

If you are interested in advertising or joining the site as a business please email us at: info @ darwentower.uk ( without spaces)

You will benefit from the company having the longest online Web Design and Online Marketing career in the UK celebrating 25  years with a bespoke Brochure and website produced specifically for you, along with other strategic placing on the prestigious 24hrs portal which is the national version of this local pilot site. We are working very hard to keep local communities alive and vibrant.

 There are various types of promotion available such as classifieds, recruitment, events, banners, web pages and web sites, and sponsorship. We also have newsletters that can be sponsored.

Takeaways why pay silly prices to the likes of Just Eat when we dont take a commission, and venues paying Skiddle, you can have your own ticketing system..!! What are you waiting for make 2021 the year you save and make more profits.

Landlords and Business owners:

If you would be interested in marketing your products and services on the Table1 portal then please contact us for a media pack and options. We cant make this work without your help, we are doing this FOR YOU.

It will only work if we work together, so join us now and lets keep Darwen vibrant and busy to maintain the longevity that it needs.

As a member you will also join the network and be linked with direct contact details of every other business owner in town with a private discussion forum for planning projects.

We like to think this website is owned by the town and not us, once the site fills out with users it will be the people of the town who get to decide what happens on the site. Our company was just commissioned to build the website for some local people in town and we manage the payments, subscriptions and the dqay to day running of the website. Whie our registered office is in Darwen we also operate from satellite offices across the UK with some of our workers who are homeworkers.

We have over 26 years experience in web site development longer than any other company in the UK and we specialise in online marketing and promotion.

We really want this to work for the town but it will only work if people sign up, join and support the site, so we really do need you to play your part then we will all have a fantastic community website where everyone is ket in touch with each other.

We appreciate there are other local websites and facebook groups which are ok, but the groups are fragmented and the websites just dont really do enough for the area, they are too generic.

So hopefully we can fill the gap with a far more interactive website.


Best wishes from the Darwen Tower team
