The founding of Time Out

Tony Elliott founded Time Out in August 1968, producing the first edition on his mother's kitchen table in Kensington with £70.

46 years on, Time Out is an internationally renowned brand, famed for being the authority on the best things happening in your city. 

A global brand

Time Out has grown into a global multi-channel media company which spans 107 cities in 39 countries and provides the very best inspiration, information and booking opportunities for the arts, entertainment, culture, food and drink, and shopping. 

Time Out's network includes print magazines, websites, mobile apps, travel guides, events and partnerships. Time Out is truly a leading global digital brand.

A look to the future

In November 2010 Oakley Capital Investments Limited acquired 50 per cent of Time Out London. In May 2011 Oakley Capital made a further Investment in Time Out New York with the aim of creating a global digital media group.

In April 2013, Time Out Chicago was acquired by Time Out Group's US affiliates to become part of the owned and operated portfolio, joining London, New York, Paris and Los Angeles. This acquisition means that, along with New York and Los Angeles, Time Out is now in the three largest markets in the United States.
