Sunday Papers Live

If your idea of the perfect Sunday involves reading the papers in bed ‘til noon, this is for you ‒ just expect a lot more papers and a little less bed. Thanks to VIP guest speakers, the broadsheets are literally brought to life ‒ and you can even tuck into a hearty Sunday roast as you hear all about it.

Whilst a lock-in at a gin distillery sounds like a great idea, the point of this game is to actually break out of one.

Until Sunday 28th August, lockedinedinburgh.com
