Extra trains will run to serve this year’s V Festival in Hylands Park, Chelmsford.

Additional services will stop at Chelmsford as part of the routine weekend timetable from rail operator Abellio Greater Anglia.

Extra trains will also run from Chelmsford to London, Colchester, Clacton and Ipswich with last trains all departing after midnight on both days of the festival on August 16-17.

Simi Tinubu, area customer services manager for the rail operator, said: “The V Festival is one of the best festivals in the country, with some great headline acts.

“We are pleased to be arranging many additional stops at Chelmsford station for our customers travelling to the festival and some additional late night services for those returning home after the festivities. We hope everyone enjoys this very special event.”

Details of the additional services can be found at the Abellio Greater Anglia website, or by ringing National Rail Enquiries on 08457 48 49 50.

Theatre in the Forest returns to Jimmy’s Farm as Shakespeare meets the wild west (with a dash of Richard Curtis) in Red Rose Chain’s As You Like It.

Katherine Jenkins is one of the few artists who could look perfectly picturesque gliding towards the Waterfront Stage at Latitude Festival.

Festival goers to Latitude put their best fashion foot forward at the Suffolk festival.

The melodic guitar riffs blared out with a bouncing success as Two Door Cinema Club took to the Obelisk stage on Saturday afternoon.

Skies were looking grim over the main stage but the chilled, dance anthems of Milky Chance managed to just keep the weather at bay, and get everyone in the crowd dancing and jumping in time with the guitar beat.

American comic Reginald D Hunter was at his offensive best despite having to perform his set from a wheelchair after breaking a leg.

With his charming good looks and energy filled set, it’s hardly surprising the comedy tent was filled with enough young girls to rival a One Direction concert.

It’s hard to believe this wry and witty comedian started out as a corporate lawyer, although then again it’s not.

Lucy Rose, Skott and Joel Dommett were among the acts to strut their stuff on Saturday afternoon at Henham Park as Latitude Festival continued.
