How would you like a monthly magazine which is…

Edited by ex-Spectator man Alexander Chancellor, The Oldie is emphatically not a magazine about retirement. We recognise that what our readers want more than anything else is good writing and amusing articles on a wide variety of topics. It is for any independent-minded reader.

As well as all the regular book reviews (past reviewers have included Tony Benn and Colin Dexter), arts and theatre, travel and columns (Virginia Ironside and Raymond Briggs to name just two), The Oldie has regular interviews with MPs, writers, comedians and those currently in the news. Our "I Once Met" feature is written by our readers, telling of their run-ins with the famous and infamous, while our "Anorak" column is written by a different geek every month (music critic Stuart Maconie recently confessed all). You’ll find a sense of humour an advantage.

Plus! The Oldie Review of Books is our free quarterly supplement which gives you a digest of reviews of the sixty best books of the quarter. We compile not just our own views but those of all the national press and leading magazines to ensure you get the best picture. This is in addition to our renowned book sections and reviewers.
