A subscription to The Oldie magazine provides an eclectic mix of humour, cartoons, reviews, interviews and eccentricity.
The Oldie dares to give readers something different and unpredictable. Each issue brings you great writers such as Mavis Nicholson, Raymond Briggs, Ruth Rendell and Tom Stuttaford. As well as these and other equally famous and talented guest writers, there are contributions from people of whom you will not have heard. It is this unsolicited material that makes it unique.
The Oldie magazine was founded in 1992 by Richard Ingrams, who for 23 years was the editor of Private Eye. The Oldie recognises that what readers want more than anything else is good writing and amusing articles on a wide variety of topics. The Oldie magazine is for any independent-minded reader.
The Independent Newspaper recently described The Oldie as 'the most original magazine in the country...their eclectic embrace of human variety is a monthly rebuke to the formulaic, celebrity-led concept of features in our newspapers and magazines’, the novelist PD James has said 'an indispensible antidote to the triviality of the 21st-century' and as stated by Terry Wogan 'age only matters if you are a cheese.'
Please note that The Oldie is published 13 times a year meaning a 12 issue subscription runs for 48 weeks.

I have to admit, I do like getting my nose into current affairs stuff. Magazines like The Oldie are always really entertaining, funny, and bordering slightly on the edge of not being okay. I quite like that. Sometimes I read those sorts of social/political mags and go, ‘Ooh, you got away with that!’ I like magazines that are intelligent, and that you can dip in and out of when you have time.
