Putting tinsel round the edges of their living and breathing newspaper, Sunday Papers Live are back this weekend for their sixth yuletide edition.
With an indulgent festive platter of people that will make you laugh, politicians, thespians, wordsmiths, thinkers, stylistic movers and musical shakers, this wholesome experience has been curated to make the moment we are living in grab you.
As if you were flicking through a broadsheet, only the most interesting stories and spokespeople have made the cut, with this weekends line-up including: the leader of the Green Party, Natalie Bennett; fashion meets ethics designer Katherine Hamnett; rapper / actor / all round sharply-tongued cookie Akala, foreign journalism institution The Frontline Club bring along James Longham (BBC) and Lindsey Hilsum (Channel 4 News), saxophonist Soweto Kinch, QI writer / elf Dan Schrieber and polar explorer Ann Daniels, just to name a few.
A regular Sunday would include a roast and maybe some red wine but Sunday Papers Live don’t do things the regular way. This weekends long table banquet is courtesy of Tom Hunt (AKA Eco Chef Of The Year) who will be serving up a roast menu finished with some sensational seasonal touches.
And its not just normal words or sensible talks, these informative tit-bits have been seasoned with a sprinkling of story telling with award-winning yarnsmith Rachel Rose Reid as well as the enchanting philosophy walks with Robert Rowland Smith atop nearby Primrose Hill. Theatre chaps Sons & Sons will provide you with a giggle with their interactive Sudoku, record-breaking business, lonely heart love-ins and classic films in the Capers Room.
Quite often on a Sunday, leaving your living room might seem like a major feat. The daunting fear of coldness, over cooked roasts or bad conversation. Expect none of this. Simply saunter into the most intellectually indugent living room London has to offer and get ready to be enlightened by what Sudays can really be made of.
