“Bloomsbury Festival captures the diversity of bright minds connected to these few streets of London, from the past to the present day”
The Guardian

Working with partners from across Bloomsbury’s diverse academic, professional and resident community the Bloomsbury Festival 2020: Vision theme will act as a catalyst to a wide spectrum of events from the arts and science of the visual world, to perception and futurology.  Alongside a host of visual creative projects and amazing scientific discoveries, the 2020 programme will turn Bloomsbury inside out, making visible the parts and people rarely seen, and working across the Festival to envisage Bloomsbury in 2120.
