A 12-month party to mark years of friend­ship

The Sunday Post (Inverness) - - OPINION -

To­day’s mile­stone is just the start of a year-long cel­e­bra­tion. A symposium is tak­ing place at Glas­gow’s Mitchell Li­brary in April and in May the Scot­tish Sto­ry­telling Cen­tre in Ed­in­burgh will mount an ex­hi­bi­tion of orig­i­nal cover art. Later that month, a spe­cial read­ers’ week­end at Al­vas­ton Hall in Crewe will al­low fans to meet the team be­hind the magazine, hear about the his­tory and take part in ac­tiv­i­ties.

The magazine’s high­est-ever cir­cu­la­tion was on Septem­ber 7, 1974 when it sold 851,578 copies. The an­niver­sary edi­tion of The Peo­ple’s Friend is on sale now.

First edi­tion and, right, best-seller
