Local, Global, Inspiring
Bloomsbury Festival is a contemporary and inclusive annual celebration of the area’s creativity, presenting an inspiring programme of culture, arts, science, literature, performance, discussion and debate.
BLOOMSBURY FESTIVAL 2022
The 2022 festival theme is Breathe. Under this theme the festival events will respond to our sense of wellbeing, environment and air quality, and cover the subjects of freedom of speech and self-expression.
The programme will feature all types of cultural events including performance, music, outdoor installations, theatre, exhibitions, tours and talks, and a Discovery Hub for schools and families.
Our festival programme is enriched by creative engagement for residents and local professionals, opportunities for emerging artists, and our aim to reflect and promote the young and diverse Bloomsbury of 2022.
For ten days from Friday 14 to Sunday 23 October 2022, the streets, parks, museums, galleries, science buildings and institutions of this vibrant cultural quarter play host to around 100 events developed with partners alongside Bloomsbury Festivals own outdoor productions.
