Bloomsbury Festival champions the people and institutions of this vibrant cultural district of London. A hotbed of creativity and pioneering development, Bloomsbury has one of the youngest and most diverse populations in the country. With a unique blend of academic institutions, businesses, cultural organisations and diverse residents, Bloomsbury has been a catalyst for ideas for hundreds of years. We work across this community to create a ten-day programme of original work made in Bloomsbury.
Outside the Festival period, the organisation delivers community engagement and arts development projects. These include Festival in a Box, which takes artists into the homes of people living with dementia, and a Creative Development Lab which unites artists, academics and residents to develop cross-genre Festival projects.
