Event description

Description

The squares of Bloomsbury have been home to many writers, printers and publishers - not just the Bloomsbury Group! Come and meet some of them on a walk in London's most picturesque squares, visiting places frequented by the lesser known bibliophiles, scholars and even printers in the area around Russell Square. Hear about a book collector who cast out a demon, another who believed that Shakespeare's plays were written by Francis Bacon, a Lord Chancellor who was said to fall asleep in trials and a man who refused a knighthood twice. As well as seeing the first pedestrian shopping centre in London and the site of a famous printing press 100 years old this year.
