Latitude The best bits of all festivals rolled into one!
Set in the beautiful, sweeping grounds of the historic Henham Park Estate, Southwold, on the sunrise coast of Suffolk, Latitude promises to bring something unique and different to the British summer calendar.
Diversity is the main thing here, explains organiser Melvin Benn, I want to bring that genteel, less manic feel that European festivals have to Latitude. The Haye On Wye event has also inspired me a lot and I want to incorporate elements of that to our festival. I want to be able to wander from books to music to film in the way you can in your own sitting room. I am looking forward to that feeling of being able to listen live to the music and then the words of an author or poet or environmentalist rather than just reading it in the newspapers or listening on a cd.
Expect music, art, comedy, cabaret, film, literature, theatre, performance art, dance, sculpture, workshops, restaurants and bars offering waiter service.
