Latitude

Founded in 2006, Latitude Festival coined the tagline ‘More than a music festival’ and it certainly is. Alongside major names on the music stages, Latitude offers a range of theatre, dance, poetry, comedy and literature over four days in the beautiful Henham Park in Suffolk. Multi-coloured sheep and attendees from 8-80 make this one of the most diverse festivals on the circuit.
