Weaving together literature, art, architecture, history, film, theatre and education the festival is made up of more than forty, free events! This year’s theme aims to encourage greater engagement within the local community of Bloomsbury and beyond, with a focus on inspiring new creative collaborations between institutions, businesses and individuals in this pocket of London. 👩🏽‍🎨 🎭 ☀️

Bedford Square’s beautifully preserved Georgian buildings and garden are not usually open to the public, but this annual Festival represents a chance for the Square’s residents to throw open their doors, revealing a fascinating enclave that is full of artistic and scientific knowledge, beautiful spaces, amazing stories and remarkable histories.

Bedford Square Festival is a collaboration between five of the cultural institutions that reside in this corner of Bloomsbury:

  • Paul Mellon Centre
  • Architectural Association
  • Sotheby’s Institute
  • Yale University Press
  • New College of the Humanities
