Tablet 175

The Tablet: 1840-2015

This year marks 175 years since The Tablet published its first edition. The Tablet, now under its seventh editor and its first woman editor, has covered 12 conclaves and two papal visits to Britain. To mark this important anniversary, we’ve planned an exciting programme of events beginning in May.


Join us in celebrating the 175th anniversary of The Tablet.

Information on how to apply for tickets for the events will appear in The Tablet’s print edition and there will also be regular updates on this page.
