Founded in 1869
“The People’s Friend” is DC Thomson’s flagship title and the longest-running women’s weekly magazine in the world.
First gracing newsagents’ shelves on 13 January 1869, the magazine has an ever-rising subscription base and is loved and trusted all around the world, with readers in Canada, New Zealand, Australia and South Africa.
For more than 150 years, we have produced content each week that reflects our loyal readers’ lives whilst retaining the traditional family values “The People’s Friend” was built on.
Our readers are engaged, active and just loving life! Regular craft, cookery, puzzles, travel and gardening content reflects their diverse range of interests.
We’re proud to publish more fiction than any other women’s magazine and this is our USP. People who love to read find a full week’s worth of entertainment packed into “The Friend” for only £1.99.
