If relaxation was an art form, then Sunday Papers Live would be its Louvre.
You see Sunday Papers Live takes everything great about Sundays – roasts, long walks, quality sofa time, those gloriously oversized newspapers, etc. – and distills it all down into a kind of serenely laid-back pop up utopia.
Thus, for their next edition this March they’ll be transforming the already show-stopping One Marylebone– a hauntingly beautiful central London church – into a vast living room, by absolutely filling it with worn settees, oversized Chesterfields, piles of newspapers, and a frankly dangerous amount of tea & cake. Massages are available all day. Slippers are encouraged. Napping is sacrosanct. You can bring a blanket, a pair of knitting needles, even a cat. If it’s Sunday-appropriate then it’s cool. So go ahead. Come in your pjs.
Throughout the day, you’ll then get a few performers & speakers take the stage in the very centre of the room. On top of that, there’ll be some top-shelf triviality in the form of the ultimate pub quiz, some live music, arts & crafts, market stalls, and more.
As mentioned, there’ll also be the all-important roast. And that roast will ibe served up on a long table, banquet style. And in true Sunday fashion, there are no set meal times, or reservations. Oh, and the drink of the day will be a Bloody Mary, courtesy of Bourne & Hollingsworth.
And just to gild this glorious lily, there are even a couple of surprises hidden up the organiser’s sleeves too, which are best left un-divulged (lest they stop being surprises), but which we can assure you will be genuinely quite wonderful.
It honestly makes Monday look like it’s not even trying.
NOTE: Sunday Papers Live will next take place on 17th March at One Marylebone. You can find out more, and get your tickets (£39.50 for the whole day, £20 evening only) at their website right HERE.
