This weekend-long festival in swish Bloomsbury boasts more than 150 free cultural events taking place in 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. Last year's highlights included non-stop performances on the SOAS World Music Stage, craft markets and literary groups in Russell Square, candle-lit folk music at the Perseverance pub, Handel recitals at the Foundling Museum, dancers and art installations at the Wellcome Collection, and drawing workshops at the British Museum.
