Suffolk’s Music and Arts Festival – Latitude, 2017:
Latitude Festival takes place on 13th – 16th July in the stunning grounds of Henham Park, Suffolk. Probably the UK’s finest multi-arts festival returns this year for its 12th edition promising an unrivalled breadth, depth and quality of arts programming.
This summer I’m thrilled to be off to Latitude for the first time. I have long wanted to go, and have listened to friends recalling their wonderful experiences over the years with great envy. But this year, finally I am going, and being such a passionate a lover of both theatre and music what better place to go. This year’s line-up is looking exceptionally good; I am looking forward to spending my days lapping up the culture by the lakeside. I particularly would like to see the Royal Court Theatre’s production of Manwatching and Saturday evening the magnificent Mumford and Sons are headlining amongst many other exciting shows and acts.
Perhaps what sets Latitude apart from other festivals is its diversity and commitment to arts. With a spectacular choice of major shows, groundbreaking pieces and the first glance at works in progress, this year’s timely theme of ‘Come The Revolution’ will be reflected through theatre,
spoken word, cabaret and gig-theatre. Latitude’s Curator of the Arts, Tania Harrison says, “As we launch the Latitude Theatre programme, I’m delighted to share this summer’s festival theme, Come The Revolution. I have invited artists and companies to explore the idea of revolution, from historical social changes to the injustices in our society today; to foster an empowered, revolutionary spirit in our audience”.
Latitude offers something for everyone, a weekend in an idyllic setting, with the opportunity to experience new theatre, literature, cabaret, music and a great comedy lineup. It is an ideal destination for couples, friends and families alike. If you are planning to take children, it’s good to know that the children’s area is superb, providing a massive variety of activities, workshops, arts and crafts, theatre, woodland walks, pond dipping, lake swimming, campfire story telling … Well, you get the picture! And the camping facilities are extraordinarily good, with the added benefit of some hot showers, what a luxury!
So if you haven’t already booked already, do, and I might see you there.
