Bloomsbury may be best known for the British Museum, but this weekend (Friday 21-Sunday 23 October) it will come alive with an enormous array of events at the Bloomsbury Festival. There are dance displays, lantern parades, pot puzzles and tea exhibitions, but as the home of the infamous Bloomsbury Group, the most interesting happenings seem to have a literary spin.
Write a letter to someone in the Letter Lounge, get your tongue tied at an exhibition exploring the intricacies of language at the Imaginary Menagerie, or browse Bloomsbury’s bookshops, which will also house craft stalls from local designers such as Cards by Cassandra. Sounds bloomin’ marvellous.
