Event description
A presentation of the story of the short-lived but influential Rebel Art Centre which opened at 38 Great Ormond Street in 1914.

About this event

Five readers re-create some of the dynamic characters at the centre of this extraordinary Bloomsbury venture cut short by the outbreak of the First World War. We meet Wyndham Lewis, Kate Lechmere, Jessica Dismorr, Ezra Pound, Roger Fry, Henri Gaudier-Brzeska and many other artists and writers who came together in this avant-garde project.

Organiser Bloomsbury Festival

Organiser of Blast!: the Rebel Art Centre in Bloomsbury

Local, global, inspiring - Bloomsbury Festival is a unique event created with over 100 partners in this vibrant cultural quarter.  For ten days in October, the streets, parks, museums, galleries, laboratories and public and private buildings of Bloomsbury will host up to 150 original events which attract audiences from across London and beyond.  

A hotbed of creativity and pioneering development, Bloomsbury also has one of the youngest and most diverse residential populations in the country. Bloomsbury Festival acts as a catalyst bringing together the area's artists, scientists and residents to explore arts and ideas through the prism of an annual theme.

Outside the Festival event, the organisation delivers community engagement and arts development projects across the year. These include it’s pioneering project, Festival in a Box, which takes artists into the homes of people living with dementia to provide life enhancing and joyful cultural experiences.

Above all, Bloomsbury Festival aims to be enlivening, engaging, entertaining, and fun!

Bloomsbury Festival is a charity. Find out how you can support us.
