Having packed the car to the rafters we set off at dawn on Friday morning for the first family festival experience in years. Latitude lived up to all our expectations; it was a world of wonder and a perfect escape from the pressures of everyday life. We arrived safely, set up camp and wandered into a bubble of music, dancing, comedy, cabaret, yoga in the woods and so much more.

There were workshops for kids; a fair, amazing variety of food stalls. The position is idyllic in the Suffolk country side, with a wild lake to swim and the view of the sun coming down touching the earth. Lanterns hung off trees, sheep were painted pink, twinkling lights glowed from all directions. It was the perfect place to bond with my three teenagers who shared a love of the freedom a festival gives. Latitude was fantastically managed, rubbish was collected by a team of volunteers and split up in recycling bins, the toilets were cleaner than any others I have experienced at a festival, and the showers were clean in the campsites. I would recommend this festival to families with kids of all ages, from babes in arms to teenagers wanting the eclectic mix of music they provided. We were so lucky to be blessed with the warmest weekend of the year and a few days home has already made me dream of going back.
