Latitude Festival is a diverse music and performing arts festival in the beautiful Suffolk woodland, showcasing a weekend of music, theatre, comedy, workshops and more for the whole family. 

Set inside Henham Park, Latitude’s eclectic 2020 programme will span from main stage headline sets with Haim, Liam Gallagher and The Chemical Brothers, to comedians such as Bill Bailey treating fans to stand-up comedy, and theatre productions from esteemed companies. But it doesn’t stop there. Wander through the Latitude woods and you could easily find yourself stumbling across late night DJ sets, becoming immersed in interactive art installations, or slowing things right down at the SOLAS retreat, where you can get involved in a variety of wellbeing activities such as yoga and healing.
