You won’t believe it, but Time Out is 50 this year. Since our pocket-sized first issue in 1968, we’ve published almost 2,500 magazines in London and many more in other great cities around the world. Now, to celebrate our big birthday, we’ve teamed up with the Museum of Brands in Ladbroke Grove to put together an exhibition of our best ever magazine covers.
The original print issues on display date right back to that very first magazine in 1968, through the radical ’70s and glitzy ’80s and ’90s and through to the present day. Check out cover stars like David Bowie, Elton John (who guest edited Time Out in 2004) and Joanna Lumley, and designs by Tracey Emin, Banksy and Gorillaz mastermind Jamie Hewlett as well as legendary Time Out designer Pearce Marchbank and other talented staff designers. It’s a brilliant and bizarre journey through 50 years of design, pop culture and city life. Don’t miss out!
