From the archive: Read the Run-Riot Review of Sunday Paper's Live by Kerenza Evans.



Established in 2013 with the mission of reimagining the classic Sunday pleasures as communal experiences, Sunday Papers Live invites you – slippers and all – to come and join and hear the papers unpacked, share a roast, sup Bloody Marys from sofas and enjoy some serious downtime. It’s like curling up on your own sofa, but with hundreds of friends, and professionals taking care of the Bloody Marys and roast - and the brightest and best presenting the papers, so you don’t even have to turn the pages.



How do we tackle the climate crisis? How can we play a part in making change happen? How do we rein in the power of Big Tech? How should we eat a bacon sandwich? For the past five years, besides his role as an MP and shadow cabinet member, Ed Miliband has been discovering and interviewing brilliant people all around the world who are successfully tackling the biggest problems we face, transforming communities, and pioneering global movements.  He joins us to share what he's learned.


Ed joins us to share the tale of the war veteran, mystic, and adventurer Maurice Wilson, who attempted to climb Everest in 1934. A tale of tragedy and obsession, pluck and luck.


Finding herself uprooted, heartbroken, grieving and living out of a suitcase in her late twenties, Alice began planting seeds. With each unfurling petal and budding leaf, she began to come back to life. Her memoir Rootbound explores how a whole new generation is discovering the power of plants, and how bringing a little bit of the outside in can help us find our feet in a world spinning far too fast. Alice is Features Editor at Penguin Books, having previously worked as a writer and editor on the arts desk of the Telegraph.

Son & Sons

Barely more coherent than toddlers themselves, our crossword gurus have been running the sillier side of Sunday for 5 years.

Science writer, journalist & broadcaster; Marcus Chown will boggle your mind on a scaled walk across the solar system via Primrose Hill.

Chef Danny Jack

While his technique is firmly rooted in the classics, he frequently borrows big flavours from non-European cuisine, placing qualities of seasonality, locality and provenance at the forefront of his food.

Le Swine

Their mission was simple…. to take the humble bacon butty to dizzy new heights. A bacon butty like no other.
