An exhibition of Time Out cover designs, dating right back to our first issue in 1968.

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!

The first ever edition of TimeOut, released 50 years ago, covered a 3 week period between August 12th and September 2nd. Robert Harris and Tony Elliot has done something not seen before in London and collated all the best events, places and quirky things to do within London, for just 1 shilling. A phenomenon was born.

Fast forward 50 years and TimeOut is now a weekly magazine and it's free. The format is exactly the same though. Let the people of London know what is going on and where you need to go to see it. It has also branched out into major cities throughout the world, including New York and Sydney.

This exhibit puts together the 50 best ever covers from throughout the TimeOut history and range, featuring the first edition, the cover in response to the tube bombings, produced in just a few hours, and some iconic cover based on the interviews contained withing, such as Maryln Manson,and Monty Python.

Found in the Museum of Brands (which is worth a visit on it's own), you can't go wrong popping in to see this too.

50 years ago, a young Londoner decides to start a magazine for all the events running in London; up to that point, so many things going on but not a single paper/magazine to gather all of them. This was the birth of Time Out; the No 1 cultural magazine for London & a brand that is spread worldwide. The Museum of Brands hosts the 50 most iconic covers of Time Out magazine through the years. A fun excibtion that you can enjoy with your ticket to the Museum of Brands - a great museum that covers the history of many of the today's brands that everyone loves!
