2024 Programme Open Call

Each year we programme around 100 creative events and exhibitions of which the majority are ‘Partner Events’. These showcase the cultural offer of Bloomsbury from many disciplines and from all parts of our unique inner-city community, including residents and institutions. The festival offers a platform for Partner Events in a variety of venues, and supports the marketing and ticketing of events within the festival programme.

2024 Theme: Human.Kind
The 2024 festival theme will be Human.Kind which can be interpreted in any way you wish. You could view it as a single word, be inspired by either Human or Kind, or take inspiration from the dot in between. Events can celebrate, challenge or explore the concepts of the theme.
