This year’s Bloomsbury Festival opens on Friday 13th October and sees various local venues play host to an exciting programme of theatre and music performances, art and science exhibitions and talks and local walks associated with the theme grow. This annual celebration of the area – now in its eighteenth year – blends the best of contemporary Bloomsbury’s hotbed of creativity with a nod to its pioneering past.
The festival will launch on the Friday with an afternoon of street food and entertainment at the Street Food & Flower Market on Store Street. As well as a delicious global range of food stalls and local restaurants to sample, a host of dance groups and performers will kick off the festival in style with street dance and spoken word events.
The following ten days offer a unique mix of events from theatre companies, artists, musicians, cultural organisations and the community itself where there is something for everyone from theatre goers to budding scientists.
The festival programme has over 100 events including theatre, music, exhibitions, talks and walks. The events are presented by numerous creative partners from our unique Bloomsbury local community which includes leading universities, communities from across the world, a high proportion of young people both resident and visiting students, talent emerging from our leading art, theatre and music academies, and some of the country’s leading science and medical teams.
