Across seven separate arenas, as well as making use of the woods and lake, the festival will showcase comics, filmmakers, visual artists, poets, authors, actors, directors ond dancers in the Arts Arenas - The Comedy, Poetry, Literacy, Theatre, Music & Film, Dance and Cabaret Arena.

Comedy Arena
The Comedy Arena's line-up will include Tommy Tiernan, Marcus Brigstocke, Russell Kane, Emo Philips, Ardal O'Hanlon, Rich Hall, and Richard Herring.

Theatre Arena

Hidden Stage
The woods of Henham Park will hold a small and hidden stage that hosts intimate performances during the day, and music to dance the night away after dark.

Childrens Arena
There's a dedicated Children's Arena as diverse as the rest of the festival, where kids can enjoy books, art, music, theatre, heaps of participation and fun, from circus skills to handmade crafts to an appreciation of the woodland setting and the nature within it. Teens can also expect a full programme of events to keep them stimulated and entertained.

Six different theatre groups will offer themed drama workshops, traditional puppet shows, circus skills, Alice In Wonderland adventures through to making pizza with the Utensils Puppet Show. Young bookworms will find a library tent, books to borrow and take home, plus lots of storytelling sessions.

There will be a Baby and Toddler chill out tent which also includes a soft play area, free sunscreen, baby changing and food warming facilities and more.

Boutique babysitting

Latitude will offer dedicated fully qualified festival childcare professionals who will provide bespoke childcare at a 'mini festival' of their own the Boutique Babysitting kids club. Parents will be given the chance to drop off their little ones at a choice of two 4-hour sessions, with the later one taking place after the festivals' own Children's Area has closed up for the night. Children will be invited to explore and experiment with their own music studios, production, wardrobe and stage areas; make new festival friends; play games and generally enjoy some parent-free fun at their very own festival.
