THE BBC will be broadcasting from Latitude on Radio 4 and, for the first time, Radio 2 and 6 Music.

Radio 4 is at Latitude for the fourth year with five shows featuring a mix of award-winning comedy and specially-commissioned programmes.

Jeff Smith, head of music at Radio 2, said: “Taking Radio 2 and 6 Music to Latitude demonstrates the continued commitment to bringing the best of live music and events to our audiences.

"It is important to get out and connect with our listeners around the country and Latitude represents a great opportunity for this - the broad range of music and varied arts and culture elements lend themselves well to our audience and to coverage in our programming.
