Bloomsbury Festival is back this year with an explosive five-day programme of arts, culture and science events, celebrating the theme of ‘language’ in one of London’s most culturally exciting neighbourhoods. Store Street’s night-time street party with a twist will also be making a welcome return for a second consecutive year, as part of this year’s exciting festival line-up, on Friday 21st October from 6.30-9.30pm.
With a host of new entertainment in line with this year’s theme of Language, Step Out Store Street will explore the language of dance, with the street transformed by more than 100 artists and dancers, to become a vibrant public stage for different forms of dance, from Bollywood and Swing to B-boy and Line dancing.
In partnership with renowned dance company The Place, a new street dance will be created by award-winning choreographer Tony Adigun with his Avant Garde Youth Company and will be premiered at the event. Visitors will have the chance to take part in the revelry by learning new dance styles or simply enjoy the show.
Back by popular demand with an ‘echo’ of last year’s event, pyrotechnics specialists pa-BOOM’s will return with one of their mesmerising fire installations to mark the street’s entrance from Tottenham Court Road. Store Street’s unique mix of independent shops and restaurants will again remain open later than usual and will each house a different art, music or dance experience to enjoy.
There will be plenty of food available from the street’s cafés and restaurants, as well as from street food stalls and pop-up bars throughout the evening.
