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, John Sweeney, 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.
