“Bloomsbury Festival captures the diversity of bright minds connected to these few streets of London, from the past to the present day”
APRIL 2020 – Bloomsbury from Home Please see our new Bloomsbury from Home page to explore some of the rich cultural content coming from our Bloomsbury creative partners from the comfort of your own home.
Bloomsbury Festival is an annual celebration of the area’s pioneering creativity, presenting an inspiring programme of arts, science, literature, performance, discussion and reflection.
Local, Global, Inspiring – our artistic choices are informed by our focus on providing enriching opportunities for artists, enticing creative engagement for residents, and our aim to promote contemporary Bloomsbury.
For ten days each October, the streets, parks, museums, galleries, laboratories and public and private buildings of this vibrant cultural quarter play host to up to 130 events developed with partners alongside Bloomsbury Festival Productions and Commissions.
Bloomsbury Festival 2020 will take place from Friday 16 October until Sunday 25 October. The theme for 2020 is VISION.
Our work is year round and includes Festival in a Box, an outreach project bringing the joy of arts and crafts back into the lives of local residents living with Dementia or other socially isolating health conditions; a Creative Development Lab, that brings together 4 leading artists to work with 4 Bloomsbury specialists and 4 local residents to inspire imaginative original artistic projects and engaging and entertaining pop-up events throughout the year.
