The Ultimate Sunday Experience, Sunday Papers Live, makes its much-anticipated return on Sunday 17th March taking place in ONE Marylebone. This event breathes life into the Sunday broadsheets, covering sections like Politics, World News, Food, Music, Culture, and Lifestyle, by transforming them into dynamic live experiences. From in-depth discussions on current affairs to light-hearted silliness, the event showcases a rich tapestry of people and opinions delivered by a diverse group of talented writers, journalists, artists, and comedians.

After the sell-out success of the November 2023 event, Sunday Papers Live is moving to a new venue: ONE Marylebone. This Grade I listed venue will be transformed into London’s most inviting living room spread across three floors. Guests will step into The Soane Hall, adorned with mosaics and stained glass, filled with inviting settees and comfy couches, plush pillows, and blankets - creating the perfect ambiance for soaking up thought-provoking talks and sparking stimulating conversations.The Sunday Papers Live house band will greet guests with live music, while London’s finest Bloody Marys, courtesy of Bourne & Hollingsworth, will be served from bars throughout the room, setting the stage for unparalleled relaxation.

On the first floor, the characterful galleries will play host to ‘Crafternoon,’ offering guests a creative outlet between discussions, perfect for both the young and the young at heart. An indulgent Sunday Roast, replete with all the fixings, will provide delicious sustenance throughout the day.

The speaker lineup, a closely guarded until the event week, typically features an eclectic mix of writers, poets, politicians, journalists, and comedians. The November edition showcased riveting presentations from characters such as Polly Toynbee, Chris Atkins, and Rafael Behr, covering a wide range of topics from politics to prison breaks. In between talks, the Sunday Paper Crosswords are brought to life, with each word in the crossword being acted out in a series of fun interactive charades, conducted by the hosts and comedians. The day's festivities conclude with an unforgettable Sunday quiz in the vaults of ONE Marylebone, where teams compete in lively rounds of topical questions.
