Mollett’s Farm is the perfect base from which to enjoy Latitude Festival without any of the stresses usually associated with Festival Camping.
At our beautiful Farm directly off the A12 you can choose from one of our luxury accessible Stables Studios, spacious Granary Cottages, or our tranquil caravan site with 16 Amp electric hook-ups (EHU) free WiFi and all of the benefits you would expect from a Caravan and Motorhome Club Certificated Location.
Latitude Festival is well known for being a fun-packed, family-friendly festival, and this year will be no exception. As Winners of the Best Family Festival 2018 you can expect plenty of entertainment for everyone in the Family.
So, what can you expect to enjoy at Latitude 2019?
There is a designated kids area. This is a mini festival within the festival where little ones can explore and create. There’s a range of workshops to choose and kids can try a range of experiences like learning to Beatbox, turning everyday waste into fun new things, and even willow weaving and bushcraft!
The Inbetweeners’ Area is strictly for ages 12 and up and is perfect for teens who want to experience a whole range of digital, fashion, tech, media and music tutorials. Whether you have a budding influencer or music producer, sign up for a workshop like games character design, horror blockbuster tips, street art, broadcast skills, even a selfie workshop, and give them an opportunity to learn more about their passion and get some hands-on experience with real industry professionals.
Most of these workshops save spaces for walk-ins on the day, but the Latitude website has full details so you can book and avoid any potential disappointment.
Fun for the adults
Whatever their ages, Latitude has created workshops for children and young people so they can enjoy a safe space to express themselves and learn new skills, while you head off for some more grown-up activities – a cabaret show, award-winning poetry, your favourite headlining band or simply an ice cold glass of prosecco in the woods!
Latitude Festival first launched in 2006 and despite attracting an incredible line up of international artists and bands it still retains a relaxed, civilised feel, like a well-kept secret. There are often still day tickets available right up until the weekend itself. It’s all pretty compact too, so compared with giants like Glastonbury and Reading, there’s minimal walking between stages and no fear of getting lost.
Headlining the festival this year are George Ezra, Stereophonics, and Lana Del Ray, however, although the music is a big draw there are plenty of other things to keep you entertained throughout the day and late into the evening. Here are some other festival favourites you must not miss while you’re visiting Latitude Festival 2019.
Jason Manford and Katherine Ryan which will have audiences laughing out loud at the Comedy Arena. With the biggest comedy line up in the UK, upcoming and established comedians will be showcasing their talents back to back all weekend – you might even stumble across the next Morecambe and Wise?
You can find your inner zen with a range of holistic and wellness treatments at SOLAS – the festival’s special woodland retreat. This magical sanctuary space nestled among the trees is dedicated to the art of chilling out! Try your hand at yoga, calligraphy, massage, dance, experience some immersive art installations and much more.
Whether you’re new to festivals or you’ve been plenty of times before it’s always important to have a checklist of items you need to take with you.
Below are 10 items we would recommend taking with you.
- A hat
- Waterproof poncho (although a bin bag will do if you’re in a fix – you won’t be the only one!)
- Comfy shoes – we recommend walking boots or trainers – come rain or shine.
- Water bottle – remember no glass is allowed on the site
- Phone for taking photos and to use the torch later to find your car.
- Portable phone charger
- A light jacket or jumper – whatever the weather it will cool down as soon as the sun sets.
- Hand sanitizer
If you’re not planning on heading to the festival until the afternoon, or if you’re only going up for the day, there is plenty to enjoy right on your doorstep at Mollett’s Farm. Take a relaxing walk through the beautiful ancient forest which is just behind our property.
Have an evening in, there’s a fabulous farm shop just next door to us where you can pick up the high-quality, low-food-mile ingredients to create your family favourites in our fully equipped kitchen.
Take your meal al fresco to the communal seating area (which is also wheelchair friendly) to appreciate our south-facing rose garden, or cosy up in the spacious open plan living area while you listen to some festival favourites on one of the 150 TV and radio stations on our Smart TVs. Don’t worry, each property comes with a dishwasher so there’s no need to worry about the washing up!
Whatever adventures you get up to this Summer, make sure Mollett’s Farm is on your list as the perfect home away from home. Book now to avoid disappointment.
