Readers of The Guardian (and all other newspapers), are being invited to discover current events through more interactive channels - and I'm not talking about the ten o'clock news.

However you keep up to date with what is going on around the world, whether it is through via television, radio, online, or the old fashioned newspaper, it is now possible to explore headline topics in greater depth.

In an attempt to 'bring Guardian journalism to life', The Guardian has launched Guardian Live, a curated programme of topical events and festivals at venues across the UK.

It features a broad range of leading thinkers, who will give discussions, interviews, and educational seminars. Some of the events in London include:
