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

Bloomsbury Festival is annual celebration of the area’s pioneering creativity, presenting an inspiring programme of arts, science, literature, performance, discussion and reflection.

Inspired by the 50th anniversary of Neil Armstrong’s lunar landing, our 2019 Festival theme Small steps and giant leaps will act as a springboard for a host of creative and engaging Festival events and projects for 2019.  Celebrating endeavour, progress, and pioneering achievements Small steps and giant leaps will embrace the small vital contributions alongside the famous moments, shining a light on the radical imaginations, institutions and residents of contemporary Bloomsbury.

In a further development for 2019, Bloomsbury Festival will be extended from five to ten days. Bloomsbury Festival 2019 will take place from Friday 11 October to Sunday 20 October.

The 2018 Festival ran from 17 – 21 October 2018, and the festival them was Activists and Architects of Change. Find out more here.
