It’s usually pink elephants that hint towards a drunken hallucination – but the sight of this fuschia flock is no bleary-eyed illusion.

Regulars at the Latitude festival will recognise the colourful sheep as a mainstay of the event, set to return to Henham Park, near Southwold, this weekend.

The gambolling gang were taking it easy in a field in Heveningham today ahead of the 10-mile journey to the festival site, where the entertainment begins this afternoon and continues right through to Sunday night.

It won’t be the Latitude sheep’s first moment in the spotlight this year. In April, they got an early tinting for a day in the capital and news of this year’s theatre, dance and cabaret line-up.

To mark the festival’s 10th anniversary, the flock travelled for a photo shoot at Sadler’s Wells with dancers Shaun Dillon and Kim Collins.

The theatre will bring a dance programme to Henham Park for the eighth year running this weekend, as part of a bumper music and arts line-up.

Weather-wise, the festival site is expected to remain dry as temperatures reach the high teens. Being close to the sea, it will feel two or three degrees cooler, but the advise remains to take sun cream.
