The Oldie magazine

By The Oldie

This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.


The idea for the Oldie was cooked up 25 years ago by its founding editor, Richard Ingrams, and his much-lamented successor, the late Alexander Chancellor. Their aim was to create a free-thinking, funny magazine, a light-hearted alternative to a press obsessed with youth and celebrity. The Oldie is ageless and timeless, free of retirement advice, crammed with rejuvenating wit, intelligence and delight. I look forward to welcoming you to our loyal, ever-growing readership.

Harry Mount, Editor
