Annual festival celebrating the area’s rich history and culture with events taking place in various venues around Bloomsbury.

Events include street parties, dance and music performances, scientific workshops, interactive games, themed walks and talks.
Many of the programmed activities are free, but booking is recommended for the more popular events. The festival is also a great opportunity to visit museums, galleries, arts venues, bookshops, laboratories and even some private buildings.
