“With a theme of vitality, this year’s Bloomsbury festival is a journey of discovery for mind, body and imagination.”
This six day festival boasts more than 200 free cultural events taking place in the museums, shops, pubs and other venues in the area.
Celebrating culture and the arts community of the area in London made famous by the Bloomsbury Set of writers of the first half of the 20th century, the Bloomsbury Festival has something for every one of all ages.
The Festival is a free celebration that draws 50,000 people to London’s most inspiring cultural quarter. Showcasing an eclectic programme of pioneering art, music, dance and literature the Bloomsbury Festival is a charity that also gives a voice as well as new skills to diverse young, old and disabled people.
Bloomsbury is a national storehouse of the learning of all ages and the arts of all humankind, with more libraries, and museums than any part of London. An extraordinary line-up of the world’s most influential thinkers, from Mahatma Gandhi to Virginia Woolf to Charles Darwin, have lived and worked in the area.
“Following in their footsteps, the Bloomsbury Festival empowers the extraordinary people that live and work here today – and shows what neighbours, no longer strangers, can achieve together.”
