The many awards won by Latitude Festival

The Henham park music festival near Southwold, Suffolk England has become a very popular festival. Popularly known as latitude festival. The festival is normally run by festival republic and has annually been known for featuring a comprehensive bill of musicians, artists and bands.

Latitude festival brightly spans music, poetry, theatre, comedy, politics and films and workshops across the weekend in which it’s normally held. Last year’s event had star names like Solange and ALT-j, the killers and several others did turn up and made the event even more amazing. Whats fascinating enough is that the 2019 lineup will feature the likes of Snow Patrol, George Ezra and Lana Del Rey and also not forgetting it will also include a string of popular comedians, Michelle Wolf, Jason Manford, and Russel Kane. The festival has further gone to claim major recognizable awards over the years, in 2007, it claimed the UK Festival Award for fans favorite festival, in 2015 it also rightfully claimed the award for the Lineup of the year. Also, in 2016, it won the Uk festival award for best Toilets, and most recently it won a UK festival award for the best family festival. That shows how well the event does.

Over the years, the festival has been known to be a family friendly festival, but there are always a few logical things of note before families arrive for the event, the event normally doesn’t allow any under 16 to take part in the festival over the entire weekend without an adult of 18 or over, parents and guardians should always accompany children under 10 years on site each and every time, throughout the exits and entrances of the festival, all under 16s should be accompanied by an over 18. The latitude festival also does have a family campsite which is situated right next to the Enchanted garden area with its ever-busy program of ongoing activities purposely dedicated to those families out there set to relax and enjoy the treat that this festival always delivers annually.

In conjunction with Street Feast, the latitude festival team up together with some wonderful organizers of greatest street food markets in order to curate the biggest food line up. You can get to enjoy special preparations such as black bear burgers, baked in Brick, Kalimera, Dosa Deli, Laffa, Yum Bun, Anna Mae’s, Baz & Fred and oh! Never miss out on the beloved vegan ice cream Black Milq, that’s how amazing it gets when it comes to food. The security also knits tightly in the latitude festival for the wellbeing of many people who congregate together for the sake of enjoying the festival. That’s why you’ll find rules set for bag restrictions and all goers should correctly abide by extra searches of their vehicles, person and bags and that’s why longer queues are always ever present. Also, there are several things which you should not bring along, never carry offensive items which may be used to conduct any violent activities or cause nervousness among the common public. Together with the several awards clinched by latitude festival, it is only set for more glorious days starting with this year’s event which will be held starting from Thursday 18 July up to Sunday 21 July.
