Latitude Invites You to Join the Revolution at 2017’s Multi-Arts Festival
Latitude Festival has cemented its position as one of the UK’s leading multi-disciplinary festivals, offering everything from theatre, to workshops, to dance classes, and of course an excellent music programme.
The festival takes place between Thursday 13th to Sunday 16th July, and features a veritable plethora of attractions to keep punters entertained during their four day stay. This year, the theme is (quite befittingly, given the current political climate) Come the Revolution, which will take a rebellious standpoint through theatre, cabaret and much more.
Amongst the innovative acts involved in the Come the Revolution element of the festival is comedian Seann Walsh, who will take part in the Royal Court Theatre’s production, Manwatching. Animation protégé Paul Barritt brings his Cat and Mouse show to Latitude, and 201 Dance Company will be telling the story of gender transformation with a hip-hop twist. If you’re a fan of working nine-to-five then you’ll probably want to check out Sh!t Theatre’s DollyWould production.
Musically, you can enjoy performances from the likes of banjo twiddling countrindie (is that a word? It is now!) act Mumford and Sons, folk songsters Fleet Foxes, and The 1975. These are joined by Two Door Cinema Club, electroclash pioneers Goldfrapp, Joe Goddard of Hot Chip and The 2 Bears, psychedelic rock from Temples, and Imelda May, who has recently released her new album Life Love Flesh Blood.
Whatever you’re into, Latitude has got you covered with a damn impressive bill covering the entire spectrum of arts.
Latitude Festival takes place 13-16 July at Henham Park Estate, Beccles, Suffolk. For the full line-up, photos, videos and ticket information head over to our Latitude Festival page.
