Things to do, Festivals Free
Local festival returns with around 150 events for art lovers, music fans, shopaholics, literature buffs, young people and families. Taking place in venues and open spaces across Bloomsbury, the programme includes a lantern-lit procession in Russell Square Gardens (Fri) and a 'Big Sunday Lunch' street party on Lamb's Conduit Street (Sun 1-7pm), with food available from local restaurants and The People's Supermarket, as well as stalls selling fruit and veg, plants, vintage clothes and collectables. Wellcome Collection at the Bloomsbury Festival sees an interactive installation about local 'miracles' and 'charms' at the Wellcome Collection 'charm tree' in Russell Square, with workshops for adults and families. Time Out's Books editor, Chris Moss, will be taking part in this year's festival, introducing Faber's Contemporary Poets slot –in the company of poets Lavinia Greenlaw and Daljit Nagra – at Senate House (Sun 2-3pm).
