The last word

Where London - - Sightseeing -

Py­rotech­nic art and line danc­ing have lit­tle in com­mon, but you can see both at the Blooms­bury Fes­ti­val (19-23 Oct; p. 47). The an­nual fes­ti­val’s 150 events can draw up to 50,000 peo­ple. This year’s theme is ‘lan­guage’, so ex­pect cre­ative works in­flu­enced by speech, non-ver­bal com­mu­ni­ca­tion, Morse code and sign lan­guage – even com­puter code. High­lights in­clude a chil­dren’s choir per­form­ing in Co­ram’s Fields (19 Oct), an im­mer­sive in­can­ta­tion at the Bri­tish Mu­seum (19-23 Oct) and world mu­sic at the School of Ori­en­tal and African Stud­ies (22 Oct). On Store Street, learn Bol­ly­wood and B-Boy moves, as well as swing and line danc­ing. You can also see py­rotech­nic art (21 Oct; left), which will leave you lost for words, and en­joy a street party with a twist.
