Camping magazine celebrates its 60th birthday

Warners Group Publications has announced a major milestone in the company’s history with the celebration of Camping magazine’s 60th Birthday. The first-ever issue of Camping magazine was published in February 1961 when it was called Popular Camping. It is the UK’s only magazine purely devoted to life under canvas.

 The May issue of Camping will be the magazine’s special celebratory 60th birthday issue. As well as the usual camping content, it will include a selection of the best covers from 1961-2021 and a round-up of camping through the decades.

Camping editor, Iain Duff, said: “Things have changed a lot since that first issue back in 1961. These days, we’re more than simply a print magazine, reaching almost one million people across our paper, online, digital and social media platforms. Camping itself has changed massively in the last six decades, too.”
