End Of An Era: Time Out Magazine Distributes Its Final Print Issue After 54 Years

LondonThe publishing world marked the end of an era with the distribution of the final print edition of time up magazine.

Ever since it launched 54 years ago from an office on Chelsea’s Kings Road, the magazine has been the go-to publication for listings, movie and restaurant reviews, and everything any self-respecting Londoner needs to know about their capital. It evolved into a slimmed-down version in 2012 and became free to readers.

It was rebranded as just ‘Time’ sometime in 2020, reflecting the fact that its readers were unable to socialize or go out to work due to the lockdown.

To mark the final edition, four artists created bespoke covers. Writing in this last issue, Carolyn McGuin, Global Editor-in-Chief, said: “It is a privilege and a pleasure to serve you in print for 54 years. How long will our love affair last.”

“Thanks to the hilarious Mavericks, the expert who created this magazine: There’s no better team in the business.

“Thank you Londoners for going out with us for half a century.”

The title will now be presented in digital format only.
