LATITUDE FESTIVAL GOERS DESCEND ON
HENHAM PARK FOR THRILLING 12TH EDITION
TICKETS FOR LATITUDE 2018 ON SALE NOW
Henham Park once again provided the backdrop for one of the UK’s most eclectic and immersive festival experiences, as enthusiasts of all arts revelled in the sights and sounds of Latitude Festival 2017.
Melvin Benn, MD of Festival Republic said: “Latitude 2017 has been one of the best, and most certainly the biggest Latitude yet – we welcomed 40,000 people to Henham Park this year. The 1975 gave a phenomenal debut headline performance on Friday night. Mumford and Sons and their Gentlemen of the Road Takeover brought with it so many memorable performances – notably their headline set which was simply unforgettable. Fleet Foxes rounded off the weekend in the only way they know how – it was stunning. Yet again, I’m blown away by our Latitude audience, who were treated to the finest in music, arts, theatre, comedy and literature. I can’t wait to see you all again next year.”
Temperatures rose on Thursday night as Hot Brown Honey kicked off the theatre programming. At The SpeakEasy, Bang Said The Gun and Tim Key represented the vanguard of performance poetry and the stage took an erotic turn with popular podcast My Dad Wrote A Porno. Sick of The Fringe tackled an altogether more serious subject with Austerity Cuts as part of a virtual Wellcome Trust Arena takeover and Blue Boy Entertainment christened an effervescent Waterfront Stage with a display of hip-hop theatre with The Get Down.
