What to see near the Latitude Festival
Henham Park is five miles away from the picturesque coastal town of Southwold where you can enjoy a wide range of family friendly activities including the town’s iconic Pier. Visitors can go sailing at the Southwold Boating Lake or climb the legendary Southwold lighthouse. The RSPB Nature Reserve is also a short drive from the town centre should you wish to enjoy a spot of wildlife watching.
Southwold is also great for shopping and promises a quirky cinematic experience at the Electric Picture Palace. There are lots of activities for children and adults alike as well as a good range of local lunch spots.
Known as the festival for culture vultures, Latitude has been combining music with literature, interactive art and theatre since 2006. Latitude has almost everything, including a picturesque lake, stage performances in woodland areas and even colourful sheep!
The event features some of the best names from the world of music including old favourites and rising stars. The musical performances are balanced with live entertainment performances from comedians, dancers, theatre performers, authors and poets. There is also a plethora of workshops, creative Q and A’s, as well as previews and premieres to attend.
Surrounding the main stage, you can find the ‘On the Lake’ floating stage and Pandora’s Playground, which is an area dedicated to interactive art. From emerging talent to world famous headline acts, this festival is a dizzying display of raw talent. Previous headliners include The National, New Order and The Maccabees.
