We are a monthly magazine founded in 1992 by Richard Ingrams, who for 23 years was the editor of Private Eye. The Oldie is an eclectic mix of humour, cartoons, reviews, interviews and eccentricity.
The Independent recently said of us: '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 called us 'an indispensible antidote to the triviality of the 21st-century'. Terry Wogan also added: 'age only matters if you are a cheese.'
We are happy to send you a back issue of The Oldie for you to sample. Simply email us at [email protected]
giving us your name and address and we will post a copy to you.
If you have a friend or relative who you think would like to try The Oldie, send us their details too and we'll happily send them one as well. We're sure you'll like it.
My first post - very pleased to post something myself :)
