Bloomsbury Festival back to all events

Bloomsbury Festival is five-day celebration of the area’s pioneering creativity. Presenting an inspiring programme of arts, science, literature, performance, discussion and reflection, each October the Festival shines a light on the radical imaginations, institutions, and 11,000 residents that shape contemporary Bloomsbury. The Festival theme will be Activists and Architects of Change.

2018 marks the centenary of The Representation of the People Act 1918, which permitted women to vote for the first time.  Whilst not all women (or indeed all men…) had the vote, it was a crucial moment in the campaign for equality and democracy.  Bloomsbury has rich history of activism and is as radical now as it has ever been; Bloomsbury institutions, thinkers and scientists pioneer change across the arts and sciences.  We anticipate an interesting and inspiring 2018 Festival!
