Get lost in the real-life fairytale


Deep in the magical forests of rural Suffolk, Latitude Festival’s eclectic adventure of music, theatre, film and creative arts will be told with even more abandon in 2015 as the festival celebrates its 10th birthday.

Latitude’s earthy vibrance gives it an other-wordly magnetism that pulls in a quality of artists that would be enough to carry the festival on its own, with representatives of rock, pop, indie, folk and electronic music enthralling crowds every July.

But the multi-layered joy of latitude is that it doesn’t stop with the music lineup, but instead keeps bounding on to theatre and performing arts, stunning film premieres, craft-workshops and enormous children’s play areas.

Pointing out that Latitude is multi-award-winning doesn’t capture the intimacy of the venue and programme, but it’s not hard to see why it has been so universally acclaimed for the last decade. It’s almost impossible to there and not smile the entire time.

Henham Park is located in the heart of Suffolk’s classically English countryside. Woodland streamed with fairylights, a crystal-clear lake and the Latitude flock of multicoloured sheep form the unique natural staging for one of Europe’s most distinctive festival jaunts.


Henham Park, Southwold, Southwold, NR34 8AN, United Kingdom
