HARRY MOUNT, THE EDITOR, WRITES: "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 have been reading The Oldie since I was 20 years old, and am utterly thrilled to be the new editor. I look forward to welcoming you to our loyal readership."
The Oldie is published 13 times a year.
