Sunday Papers Live

October 2, 2016 @ 11:00 am - 6:00 pm

A homage to the shared joys of Sunday

 A day of walks, talks, roasts & performances that bring the broadsheets to life

 “…100 percent quality, Grade-A downtime.”   – Time Out

How it Works

The Papers – The broadsheets are brought to life, section by section, performance by performance, by writers, musicians, poets and comedians. Speakers or performers, will take to the floor for 15 – 30 minute slots throughout the day. Guests can dip in and out as they like. We create a relaxed atmosphere with the help of plump cushions, and refreshments! Some talks/acts will be silly, some will be serious, some will make you dance on the tables.  Read the full line-up here.

Brunch, Booze, Roast– Food and drink is what Sundays are all about. So whether guests want brunch and coffee, Bloody Marys, prosecco and an amazing roast, followed by tea, cake and smoothies, the full range on offer.

Walk – Walks, tours and conversations, guided walks provided by some of Cambridge’s most knowledgable conversationalists.

 Relax – A cozy Sunday retreat is created for the day, packed full of worn settees, oversized chesterfields, tea, cake and pile of papers. We highly recommend you bring a pair of slippers. Be prepared to get very comfy indeed. Smoking jackets, blankets, knitting, and cats are encouraged. Napping is also fine.

 A free crèche service is provided for up to 2 hours, for children aged 3-7, who will be occupied by a cozy den of games, books, fancy dress, arts, and crafts. Massages will also be available.
