The 2022 Bloomsbury Festival programme has been inspired by the theme of Breathe. The full programme includes over 100 events across 10 days, ranging from hard-hitting creative reflections on the environment to quiet moments of mindfulness.
 
The festival is working with artists of all backgrounds and ages, and with some of the area’s leading institutions and academics, to present events which explore our need to Breathe freely, whether this relates to freedom of expression, finding our voice, or to wellbeing and air quality.
 
Working with partners from across Bloomsbury’s diverse academic, professional and resident community the Breathe theme acts as a catalyst to a wide spectrum of events including outdoor exhibitions and installations, music, dance, theatre, talks, walks and more.

With a unique blend of academic institutions, businesses, cultural organisations and diverse communities, Bloomsbury has been a catalyst for ideas that have had impact across the world for hundreds of years.  Bloomsbury Festival celebrates contemporary Bloomsbury; a hotbed of creativity and pioneering development which has one of the youngest and most diverse populations in the country.

The Festival works with many large and small partners to create and deliver its annual programme.  More than simply a showcase for the area, instead Bloomsbury Festival acts as a catalyst bringing together artists and academics, scientists and dancers, musicians, publishers and school pupils to make new projects and to inspire and learn from each other.
