Bloomsbury Festival

Established in 2006, Bloomsbury Festival is a creative explosion of performance, arts, music and heritage events held in the streets, parks, museums, galleries, laboratories and public and private buildings of one of London’s most vibrant cultural quarters.This area has a unique blend of academic institutions, businesses, cultural organisations and diverse communities. The Festival celebrates the best of Bloomsbury and its pioneering attitude. We’re not just a showcase for the area – we act as a catalyst to bring together artists and academics, scientists and dancers, or musicians and publishers, to make new projects and to inspire and learn from each other.Bloomsbury Festival works with many large and small partners to create and deliver the annual Festival programme. Each year, we attract an audience of around 50,000 people.The Festival also delivers community engagement projects which give a voice and new skills to young people, older people and disabled people. Outside of the Festival period, we deliver projects such as the ‘Festival in a Box’ into care homes.Above all, the festival aims to be enlivening, engaging, entertaining, and fun!
