We are all facing extraordinary circumstances and at The London Magazine we think it is important to remain open and transparent at a time when things can feel frightening and uncertain.
Sadly, many of our beloved bookshops have had to temporarily close their doors, however, we understand that for many – including ourselves – reading offers comfort, hope and solace. Therefore, with delivery services remaining in place and online retail encouraged by the UK government, we will continue running orders direct via our website so that we can keep connected and enthused during this moment of solitude and isolation.
The editorial team at The London Magazine remains committed to maintaining its established publication schedule during this difficult period. We thank our contributors and collaborators for their diligence and dedication throughout the crisis of 2020 and wish all our readers well, both print and online, as we move gradually towards a return to normality. We would ask readers to be aware that the production team remains working from home and that print times are inevitably somewhat slower than usual with the result that print copies of the June/ July issue of the magazine have been delayed, available on back order and may take a few weeks longer than expected to reach you.
We are working hard to ensure our team and deliveries are safe and healthy, closely following government guidelines and wearing protective clothing when handling print issues. We only use Royal Mail, whose safety measures and COVID-19 updates can be found here, and we will still be shipping single orders internationally until further notice though Royal Mail are facing severe delays.
As we are working with reduced staff in our offices, there is a slight delay on dispatch of up to 10 working days. You will be notified once your order is completed and out for delivery. If tighter measures are put in place and we are unable to deliver physical copies of our issues, we will supply you with a digital version and create a backlog to be fulfilled when services resume as normal. Please note that bulk orders (including our Yearly Gift Bundles) will likely be placed on a back order to be fulfiled when restrictions in the UK are lifted. Be assured that should this apply to your order, you will be contacted directly.
The London Magazine team continue working from home, so if you have any questions or concerns regarding your order get in touch with us via email at email@example.com.
Thank you for your support at a time when it matters now more than ever.
