Time Out reaches its Golden Jubilee on 12th August 2018.

On this day back in 1968 the first edition was published in London.

A radical affair, put together in a kitchen, it was just a single sheet of paper folded to A5. It wasn’t until issue 3 that it became a proper little magazine and not until 1971 that it went A4. 

Today, of course, Time Out is a global brand. Not just magazines but books, websites, markets etc and has certainly lost its radical roots.

But when I first started exploring London by myself in the mid to late seventies, Time Out was my bible. Virtually everything I did in London was a result of something I’d read in Time Out. 

For that reason, I still have a great affection for it and plan to celebrate the big birthday. 

I’ve spent the past year building a collection of early issues. I now have the first six. Their covers are below. 

I’ll be planning a celebratory event on August 12th. If you’d like details subscribe to my newsletter below and you’ll be among the first to know.
