Bedford Square Festival
28 June – 1 July
Bedford Square Festival will open the doors of the cultural and educational organisations located in the Square to the public through an exciting programme of events.
Bedford Square Festival is a collaboration between five of the cultural institutions that reside on Bedford Square in Bloomsbury. In September of 2016, representatives from these institutions – Paul Mellon Centre, Architectural Association, Sotheby’s Institute of Art, Yale University Pressand New College of Humanities met to the discuss the idea of putting on a free collaborative event in the Square.
From the outset the aim of the festival was to promote the culture based around the Square whilst building a sense of community and promoting this to London and beyond. We want to open the doors of the grand facades of the buildings in the Square and celebrate the culture that the we pride ourselves on – art, publishing, architecture, culture, education, creativity and more.
All our events are free (apart from Shakespeare in the Squares) and should be booked in advance. During the Festival we will be raising money for our charity partner Centrepoint who is the UK’s leading charity for homeless young people.
You can view the full Festival Programme here. There are some great events focused on Architecture, Art History, Curating, Shakespeare, and Poetry, as well as a talk from A.C. Grayling on ‘Education the Future’.
You do need to book tickets in advance.
