Inspired by Virginia and Vanessa Stephen’s handwritten newspaper, ‘Hyde Park Gate News’ (1891-95), the New Bloomsbury Set Newspaper is written by the Bloomsbury Festival trainees (Angelina, Gabriel, Georgina, Hitomi, Josie and Labiba) to revisit Bloomsbury’s history and tell stories of their lives in contemporary Bloomsbury.

The two book reviews referenced in the newspaper are:
> Samuel Selvon: The Lonely Londoners – Review by Hitomi Hsu
> Khaled Hosseini: A Thousand Splendid Suns – Review by Angelina Lwanga

The New Bloomsbury Set is made possible by the National Lottery Heritage Fund.
