Tony Elliott

Tuesday, 21 July 2020

We are deeply saddened by the news of Tony Elliott’s passing, last Thursday, 16 July following a long illness. Tony founded Time Out in 1968 and grew it into a major publishing firm covering events in cities around the world.

We were proud to have Tony as a trustee of Create London since 2012. In him, we found support, warmth, ambition, and boundless enthusiasm. Tony provided valuable insights for our work, equally interested in the game-changing big ideas and the tiny tweaks that made things work better. The last time we saw him was when he brought his dog to The White House garden party in August last year. He was a real friend and we will miss him terribly.

Time Out have announced that their first post-lockdown print magazine, on 11th August, will be a special issue dedicated to him. Read more about Tony’s remarkable life at Time Out and The Guardian
