Slightly Foxed is published four times a year, in early March, June, September and December. Each issue remains current until the next one is published.
To buy a new subscription, a gift subscription or a renewal of an existing subscription please first select the starting issue, and add the subscription to your basket. Once you reach the checkout you can tell us any renewal information or, if a gift, the name and address of the recipient, any special delivery instructions, and write a personal message to be enclosed with the first issue.
Digital access will begin with the publication of the first issue and will remain valid for the duration of the subscription. You will receive a letter inside your first issue with instructions for accessing the digital edition. Or, if it is a gift subscription, the recipient will receive instructions with their first issue.
Gift subscriptions will usually start with the current issue which can be sent out for a date of your choice, tied up with elegant ribbon and accompanied by a hand-written gift card. Gift subscriptions may also start with the previous or forthcoming issues. If the former, both previous and current issues will be dispatched at once; if the latter, a card will be sent out in advance of the issue being published, or together with the issue for a later date. You can select a delivery date when you reach the checkout.
NB Please ensure you give the recipient’s full name and address as the delivery option during the checkout, even if the subscription is to be sent to you as the giver. There is an option to select ‘send to me first’ during the checkout process. We need the recipient’s name and address for their membership card and to address subsequent issues to them.
