Sunday Papers Live pops up at the Cambridge Science Festival this month

Scientists will join the likes of travel writer Tim Moore and performance poet Ross Sutherland for talks, walks and Sunday relaxation on Sunday, March 24.

Sunday Papers Live will pop up once more at the Cambridge Science Festival - which is on now until March 24.

The popular event, which runs regularly in London, brings the Sunday supplements to life section by section, performance by performance.

Cambridge Wine Merchants Wine Bar in the University Centre on the river (Granta Place) will host the event.

This special edition will feature some of Cambridge’s most engaging and fascinating science, health and technology speakers, as well as performance poetry, art activities and great food and drink.

"Programming the Cambridge Science Festival edition of Sunday Papers Live is always a joy," said Alex Ruczaj, marketing director for My Little Festival, which organises the event.

"There is such a wealth of talented and fascinating speakers – it’s hard to narrow down the list so it fits into one day.

"But we have once again got an incredible lineup – including Professor Viren Swami, who will talk about his very personal experiences of post-natal depression in men, plus the travel sections will be represented by writer Tim Moore – with a talk about his new book, Travels Through Trumpland, not to mention a bit of culture from award-winning performance poet Ross Sutherland.

"It will be such a varied day and there will be plenty of Mimosas, Bloody Marys and bean bags on hand too to help you relax and soak up all the fascinating information."

"With a wide variety of brilliant Cambridge scientists, focusing on everything from volcanoes to edible insects, from human skeletons to biodiversity in gardens – the audience will get a hugely entertaining and stimulating Sunday afternoon.

"In addition, people can go on a walking tour focused on our theme ‘discovery’ exploring the places in the city where great discoveries were made. We can’t wait.’’
