Local, Global, Inspiring
“Bloomsbury Festival captures the diversity of bright minds connected to these few streets of London, from the past to the present day”
2020 Festival Programme NOW ONLINE
Bloomsbury Festival 2020 will take place from Friday 16 October until Sunday 25 October. The theme for 2020 is VISION.
Bloomsbury Festival is an annual celebration of the area’s pioneering creativity, presenting an inspiring programme of arts, science, literature, performance, discussion and reflection.
For 2020 we have to do things a little differently. Our events will be presented by a range of means – digitally, live and socially distanced. Each event has specific details.
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.
In 2020 we are working with Bloomsbury Radio to cover the festival for an online and local audience, and we have a new version of Festival in a Box, an outreach project bringing the joy of the festival to people in the local area who are unable to come to us.
