You might know her from QI, Have I Got News For You, or hosting The Great British Bake Off: An Extra Slice. That’s right: your third Latitude 2020 comedy headliner is the one and only Jo Brand! Having begun her career in the 80’s, Jo is a veteran of UK comedy, and has established herself as one of Britain’s best loved comics. Multi-talented Jo has also written several best selling books and has performed in London’s West End. She’s a national treasure, and we can’t wait to welcome her back to Latitude!
Brit award winning singer-songwriter Celeste will be taking to the Obelisk Arena on Sunday! Celeste has been writing songs since she was 16, and her soulful vocals have been compared to the likes of Amy Winehouse and Adele. She has already toured with Michael Kiwanuka and won BBC’s Sound Of 2020 poll, so prepare for her to take over the airwaves. This is your chance to catch one of the most hotly tipped talents of the year. Don’t miss out!
