A cosy Sunday packed with cultured chats, sweet sounds, live comedy, stellar coffee, board games and killer sandwiches, all in the ornate surrounds of Belvedere House.

Sink into the perfect week-ender where we bring the style, sport, current affairs and culture sections of the Sunday papers to life.

Century Ireland’s Mike Cronin delves into the media of 100 years ago to tell us about the Easter Weekend that never was while fearless journalists Shona Murray (INM) and Sinead O’Shea (The Irish Times/Al Jazeera) recount what it’s like reporting from war zones with Una Mullally.

Elsewhere on the day, artist and fashion designer Helen Steele speaks to Roisin McVeigh about running a fashion empire from County Monaghan, comedian Colm O’Regan interprets the smiles behind the headlines and the ‘A-Team’ of Alison Spittle, Anderson & Peter Toomey explore the idea of “psychogeography” and the hidden stories of Dublin with Siobhan Kane.

Second Captains’ Ken Early analyses the top stories of the year so far in conversation with Dion Fanning, Stephen James Smith serenades with spoken word, while Julien Clancy of Sounds Alive asks us to sit back, relax, and immerse ourselves in stories about the rebels who challenged their worlds and ours.

Documentary films ‘The Queen of Ireland’ (Conor Horgan, 2015) and ‘His & Hers’ (Ken Wardrop, 2009) will screen in the lecture theatre. For more information and film schedule click here.

Pull up a chair and join us on the day the city takes a breath. Slippers are optional!
