Time Out London to become freesheet

The London edition of Time Out is to be relaunched as a free title.

More than 300,000 copies of the weekly listings magazine will be given away in the capital every week in stations, museums, shops and bars.

Editor-in-chief Tim Arthur said: "We will leap from 50,000 circulation to over 300,000, taking Time Out's unique editorial expertise to a huge new audience. We hope to inspire tens of thousands of Londoners to make the most of their Time Out."

Other editions of the magazine, including Time Out Paris, will remain as paid-for publications.
