Just because summer already seems a long time ago, doesn’t mean festivals are done and dusted until next year. Bloomsbury in central London is hosting this annual shindig stuffed full with more than 200 free arts and cultural events from music, dance, storytelling and exhibits, to walks and workshops. Must-visits include an installation by the Wellcome Collection, author Will Self presenting The Madness Of The Modern City looking at links between urban life and mental health, and a musicals masterclass with Tim Rice.

Free, October 15th-20th
