The idea for The Oldie magazine was cooked up by its founding editor, Richard Ingrams, and current Editor, Alexander Chancellor, with the support and encouragement of many top journalists. It was envisaged as a light-hearted alternative to a press obsessed with youth and celebrity, a truly independent, freethinking magazine. The Oldie offers almost no advice about retirement or how to grow old, but keeps you young with a steady supply of wit, entertainment and bracing good sense.
It is published every four weeks and has a happy mixture of features, arts and book reviews and its famous cartoons.
