Spring may be in full swing, but here at The Reader Organisation we’re already looking to the long and hopefully hot days of summer as we’ll be appearing at this year’s Latitude Festival, taking place from 17th-20th July at Henham Park, Southwold, Suffolk.
One of the most diverse festivals in UK, offering a bumper line-up of music, comedy, theatre, poetry and lots of other literature too, Latitude has something to offer everyone with this year’s bill being no exception. We’re looking forward to bringing some Tea and Tales to the festival, where festival-goers can rest their tired feet and enjoy the calm that reading great literature provides as the sun shines down (fingers crossed) – what could be better for a weekend in the summer? As we read a selection of specially chosen stories and poems and share our personal reflections with no pressure to participate, you’ll also be able to find out more about what we do connecting people with literature around the UK.
Latitude will be bringing lots of big names from the world of literature to Henham Park over the weekend, including Roger McGough, Gillian Clarke, Michael Rosen and friend and patron of The Reader Organisation Lemn Sissay on the Poetry Stage. TRO will be part of the Literature line-up, sharing the bill with headliners including Richard Wiseman, Lauren Beukes, Jon Ronson and Robin Ince. With tons of great music including Two Door Cinema Club, Damon Albarn and Editors amongst many more and comedy from the likes of Dara O’Briain, Simon Amstell and Tim Key, Latitude is the perfect festival for any culture lover.

If you can’t make it as far as Suffolk, then you can still enjoy a weekend’s worth of literature in the park at our Park Life Reading Weekend at Calderstones on Saturday 21st and Sunday 22nd June, where we’ll be enjoying a special selection of stories and poems that will help us get back to nature.
