We travelled to Latitude festival mid month, to report on the multitude of wonderful shows they have on offer, and to run a very successful Discover Club in the Kids and Inbetweeners areas. You can read all the team reviews here, and can read Mary's photo blog and thoughts on getting settled into the festival here.
Our quick fire top hits from Latitude have to be:
- A secret gig by Ed Sheeran, that we just happened to be at the right stage for! We were caught by surprise (much to the dismay of a few team members who aren't such fans of Mr. Sheeran) just as he was about to go on stage. Enjoyment and good reviews ensued.
- Watching The Last Leg in the Comedy Arena, discussing disability with the same witty but eye opening way that they are known for. "Often there seems to be a taboo about discussing disability on stage or in performance and I felt this show overcame that."
- Finally getting into the packed Wellcome Hub to watch a brilliant talk about the link between science and art, courtesy of Arthur l. Miller and Dr Marius Kwint.
- Experiencing Leanne Le Havas' 'flawless' performance on the Obelisk Arena stage.
- Ava Dance Company's perfectly timed, experimental dance number on the Waterfront Stage as the sun started to set, a true reminder of why this is the best arts festival in the UK.

We'll be kicking off our August theme a little late next month, due to a very exciting new development…watch this space!
