This is a festival you can escape and relax into, whether it’s jazz and gin in a private square, or piano recitals in the stunning new Dairy Art Centre. Our year-round outreach programme shows what neighbours, no longer strangers, can achieve together. This is a festival that couldn’t happen anywhere else.

Bloomsbury Festival shines a light on the self determination of a world-changing community of pioneers existing side- by-side across a few streets. Virginia Woolf once spoke of her sense of freedom upon arriving in Bloomsbury, and I seek to recapture that same spirit of vitality in every visitor this year. I welcome you into our sanctuary for the imagination to encounter brilliant minds, relaxation and pleasure, the new and the controversial. Bloomsbury Festival is an uplifting journey of discovery that aims to inspire, delight, surprise and move you.
