COMEDY, music, theatre, poetry - Latitude has it all.
Thousands of people turned out for the first day of the annual festival in Henham near Southwold, yesterday.
At one end of the festival hardcore music fans danced along to bands including The Aliens and Franz Ferdinand. Elsewhere children next to a field of multi-coloured sheep enjoyed all manner of activities with their parents.
As comedienne Ross Noble said during his act, “This is the poshest festival on earth” - he may have had a point.

The Pimms Island and Elite Champagne Bar all contributed to a feeling of a slightly different crowd to a usual festival. There was a large array of food outlets ranging from organic bites to fast food.
The only downside was the organisation in getting from the spot where the shuttle bus left people to the actual site. Due to hanging around and confusion, it actually took an hour before I got into the festival from arriving at Henham.

However, the great thing about Latitude is the idea that anything goes. Dozens of people walked around in fancy dress and watched unknown artists perform poetry recitals.
The overwhelming feeling was one of everyone having a really good time in a chilled out atmosphere. It felt that everyone both young and old was catered for at the festival which is due to finish on Sunday.
