Latitude - Uncut

For the past two years, the Latitude festival has been the highlight of Uncut's summer, and we're thrilled to be involved again in 2008. The bands are invariably fantastic - not least, we have to say, from those who appear on the Uncut Stage. But the Latitude experience is about far more than music. With its brilliantly-programmed book, film, comedy and theatre arenas, the festival is a relaxed and compelling celebration of all the culture that Uncut holds dear. The atmosphere is perfect. The setting is unrivalled. And the raves in the woods are worth staying up all night for. Honestly, we couldn't ask for more from a festival - roll on July!

BBC Radio 4

BBC Radio 4 was there at the very first Latitude Festival and is delighted to be coming back for the third year bringing with it more programmes than ever. Each year audiences were queuing over the fields to watch live recordings. New shows for this year include Just A Minute with Nicholas Parsons, Bespoken Word (our performance poetry show), and live on Sunday morning BBC Radio 4's flagship news programme Broadcasting House. These will join returning shows such as Loose Ends and Poetry Please with Roger McGough.


This summer PIMM’S® - everyone’s favourite summer drink - is going for laughs at this year’s Latitude Festival. It’s time to sit back, enjoy a glass of your favourite summer drink and get ready to chuckle your heart out this July in the Pimm’s comedy arena. In addition to the laughs at the Latitude Festival, the clever chaps at PIMM’S have teamed up with Festival Republic and come up with a brand new event – a fabulous five day festival of fun in September, to be held at a location in central London featuring nothing but the best of comedy talent, more details to be announced later. For more information and to find out more about Pimm’s this summer visit:


Aspall are delighted to be returning to Latitude, this time with their Cyder Barn; a replica of the original Cyder House at Aspall Hall, dating back to 1728. Aspall produces a range of multi award-winning super-premium Suffolk Cyders, Speciality Vinegars and fine English Apple Juice at its site in Debenham, Suffolk. The company is now run by the eighth generation of the Chevallier Guild. All Aspall products are made without compromise and combine the experience and expertise of production, handed down through the family, with the latest in technological developments, to ensure all products maintain their consistently superior quality and flavour. There are no concentrates, additives, preservatives or water in any of our products and every product batch is tested and passed by a family member before it leaves the Cyder House.

Penguin Classics

This year, Penguin Classics is proud to bring the Penguin Classics library to Latitude, out on display in its full glory, for everyone to pick up the books and leaf through them at their leisure. The Penguin Classics library incorporates over 1,500 books spanning 2,000 years of literature. And what makes a Penguin Classic a classic? Simple. It has to be one of the 'best books ever written'. And that doesn't mean ladies with parasols strolling through Victorian gardens admiring the roses. It means love - at its most enthralling and its most heartbreaking. It means the best politics, psychology and philosophy since ancient civilization. It means the darkest criminal minds, the cheekiest minxes and the most inspiring heroes ever committed to paper. Sort of like Latitude really but with the creative writing spanning 2000 years.
