About Hobbies Magazine
Hobbies Magazine, or Hobbies Weekly, was the regular publication of Hobbies Ltd. of Norfolk from 1895 onwards. Officially titled just ‘Hobbies’ for much of its life, the magazine was informally known as Hobbies Weekly to distinguish it from the company and the company’s yearly catalogue/annuals. It became officially named Hobbies Weekly in 1933.
The magazine went through a number of name changes during its run, notably toward the middle to end of the craze for home constructed wireless sets that lasted from the late 1920s to the mid 1930s.
The magazine’s circulation declined after WW2 in sympathy with the general downturn in the company’s fortunes, and ceased publication in 1965, followed a year or two later by Hobbies Ltd. going into receivership.
