An annual 10 day arts, culture and science festival taking place within the Bloomsbury ward of London
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.
Our 2023 theme Grow has a direct relationship to the talent development opportunities we offer as well as to our wide and varied programme of music, theatre, art, walks and talks which make up our festival events, all of which have been inspired by one of many interpretations of the theme, and by our New Bloomsbury Set project -a cultural reimagining of Bloomsbury in the 21st century.
The Festival works with many large and small partners to create and deliver its annual programme. More than simply a showcase for the area, instead Bloomsbury Festival acts as a catalyst bringing together artists and academics, scientists and dancers, musicians, publishers and school pupils to make new projects and to inspire and learn from each other.
Above all, the Festival aims to be enlivening, engaging, entertaining, and fun!
