Time Out says

It might be nearly a century since the Bloomsbury Set were gallivanting around WC1 but the area still packs plenty of creative heft, as demonstrated by the Bloomsbury Festival each autumn. The ten-day fest boasts over 100 events around the theme of ‘Breathe’, encompassing dance, music, talks, walks, science demos and street parties. Highlights include Store Street Feast, a traffic-free afternoon of food and fun amongst the independent shops of Store Street, Senate House’s drop-in Discovery Sessions, which feature free workshops and talks, walks through Bloomsbury’s garden setting and literary tours. Check out the full programme of free fun here
