Bloomsbury FestivalThis six day festival in swish Bloomsbury boasts more than 200 free cultural events taking place in the garden squares, museums, shops, pubs and other venues in the area. Celebrating the longstanding culture and arts community of the area in London made famous by the Bloomsbury Set of writers of the first half of the 20th century, the Bloomsbury Festival has a bit of everything for all ages. In 2013 Senate House becomes the Ministry of Communication for the duration of the festival, there are new After Work Sessions - including a masterclass in musicals from Sir Tim Rice, and Store Street will be shut to traffic on Saturday afternoon for the Shore Street Shindig street party. On Sunday enjoy jazz with gin cocktails, lawn games and afternoon refreshments at Bedford Square. And see some 'Extraordinary Moments in the Square' at the weekend-long event in Russell Square. Venues across Bloomsbury take part from well known institutions like The Foundling Museum, the Wellcome Collection, and the British Museum to more intimate pubs and galleries including The Harrison, October Gallery, and One KX, part of Central YMCA.
