It’s our 25th anniversary here at The Week, and it’s been quite an eventful quarter of a century for the magazine.

We’ve printed more than 1,280 issues, and have gone from analysing a few dozen newspapers and magazines every seven days to more than 200.

The Week has covered seven general elections, two global economic crises, six world cups and four royal weddings; we’ve followed landmark events from the rise of New Labour to the Brexit vote, from the impeachment of Bill Clinton to the election of Donald Trump and from 9/11 to the London Olympics.

Through all this time, we’ve always known one thing – we wouldn’t be here without our readers. To celebrate the occasion and thank you for reading The Week, we’ve put together a special anniversary page full of bonus content including:

  •  

    Get the inside story - Find out how the magazine began with our Founding Editor Jeremy O'Grady, then go behind the scenes as Howard McWilliam creates our brilliant cover art.

     

  •  

    The Week Unwrapped celebrates - Our award-winning editorial team sit down to discuss what goes into making every issue of The Week in the latest edition of our podcast.

     

  •  

    Competition time - We have two brilliant competitions for you, enter to win £150 to spend on our specially curated selection of wine at The Week Wines, plus we’re giving you the exclusive opportunity to win an original portrait by Howard McWilliam. 

     

We hope you enjoy exploring, and thank you for reading The Week.
