The Birkbeck Public Engagement Team has been part-funded by UK Research & Innovation for the past two years, enabling growth in both the team and their support across the College.

Interested in leading a walking tour in Bloomsbury?

Bloomsbury Festival will take place 11 – 20 October 2019, with the theme ‘Small Steps and Giant Leaps’, inspired by the 50th anniversary of the moon landing.

A range of events will take place during the festival, which many researchers propose and lead, or contribute to in various ways. The walking tours will last 60-90 minutes and provide an opportunity to share your local knowledge and passion with the public. This could be about historic figures, architecture, how the area has evolved, literature, arts, etc.  If you would like to propose a route or any other activity, contact k.glazer@bbk.ac.uk who can make relevant introductions with the festival organisers.
