Come to our Slow Journalism Night – 22nd March 2018

The latest issue of Delayed Gratification is at press, and we’re especially excited about this one – not just because we think DG #29 is one of our best yet, but because this time we’ll be getting to share what’s in the mag with you, face to face, at a special Slow Journalism Night in London on Thursday 22nd March.

If you can grab a ticket and make it along to the London College of Communication, we’d love you to join us. It’ll be a fun evening in which we’ll be bringing to life our coverage of the final quarter of 2017 – with members of the DG team revealing the stories behind the stories and infographics, as well as our special guest speaker, Heather Brooke, the author of The Silent State and The Revolution Will Be Digitised, and whose heroic investigation into MPs’ expenses abuses between 2004 and 2009 became a landmark case in freedom-of-information reporting.


As well as Heather, we’ll be hearing from Delayed Gratification’s roving associate editor James Montague, author of the football books When Friday Comes, Thirty One Nil and The Billionaires Club, and who Sports Illustrated has described as “the Indiana Jones of soccer writing”.

Ahead of the speakers there will be plenty of opportunity to meet the Slow Journalism team and other guests over a glass of wine (complimentary), as well a chance to win prizes such as deluxe DG poster prints in a quick quiz of the quarter (not compulsory – though well worth a punt).

You’ll also be among the very first to get hold of the new issue (also complimentary), as DG art director Christian Tate and Slow Journalism director Marcus Webb take the floor to provide fascinating insights into some of DG #29’s best stories and a glimpse into how our magazine is put together. Expect the odd entertaining digression.

The evening runs from 6.30pm to 9pm, though, so plenty of time for them to get back to the point, and tickets are £20, or £10 for Delayed Gratification subscribers. Book yours here, and we’ll look forward to seeing you on the 22nd – an evening that promises to be informal yet informative, fun yet fascinating, scintillating yet a little bit silly. So come along and help us celebrate! Slowly.
