There was SO much to do at cinch presents Latitude 2022. We don’t blame you if you spent all weekend watching the stellar music, comedy, dance, and theatre on offer. But did you manage to catch any of these hidden gems?
Relaxing To The Max In Mind Body Zen
If you were feeling a bit tired from all that walking around Henham Park, Mind Body Zen was the place to rest and recuperate. Featuring a spa, yoga sessions, guided meditations, and much more, a visit to MBZ had us feeling rejuvenated in no time.
Family Fun At Enchanted Garden
The Enchanted Garden, located right near the Family Campsite, was full of fun activities for all the family. Children and grown-ups could make their own Wallace & Gromit characters at Aardman Model Making, brand new for 2022, or get up close with critters like snakes, spiders and even meercats. If that wasn’t enough, there were fairground rides, play houses, giant board games and much more to entertain both young and old.
Wild And Wacky Vehicles At Trailer Park
Described as a “mobile-tropolis”, Trailer Park is definitely one of the most exciting and intriguing areas of Latitude. It’s where you’ll find the Mobile Home stage, where you can catch live music from up and coming bands (and maybe even a few secret sets from bigger names). It’s also home to the many giant works of art, made from vehicles, that people just like you have created: such as The Astronauts’ Caravan, a fully rotating caravan that only the bravest dare enter!
Paddleboard Yoga On The Lake
This year, Island Feather offered stand up paddleboarding lessons for those wanting to get to grips with the board. And, if you were looking for a more meditative experience, paddleboard yoga was available too! What better way to enjoy yoga than in the tranquil surroundings of the Henham Park lake?
Delicious Food In The Hothouse
If you’re a foodie, you were spoilt for choice at Latitude this year with Street Feast, The Guest Chef, and of course, The Hothouse restaurant. Housed in an adapted polytunnel, the menu this year featured seafood, pizza, burritos and more, all sourced from independent producers. A truly delicious way to while away the time.
Swing Dancing Lessons With Swing Patrol
Festival goers were able to add a “swing” to their step over on The Waterfront Stage. Swing Patrol offered dancing lessons for anyone and everyone, showing both young and old how to put their best foot forward but prioritising laughter and joy throughout. The only requirement was to have fun, and we had plenty.
Immersive Theatre In The Faraway Forest
The Faraway Forest is the place to catch interactive art installations, offbeat immersive theatre and a whole lot more. Did you see a bunch of mushroom heads wandering through the trees? That was Yao Liao’s ‘By Mushrooms’, an interactive “performance without performers”. Meanwhile ‘Signal’ used speakers, resonating panels and a live choir to create an awe-inspiring soundscape. These are just some of the weird and wonderful things waiting to be experienced in The Faraway Forest.
Getting Pampered In Lavish Lounge
Lavish Lounge isn’t just home to the BBC Introducing stage and the Late Lounge. It’s also where you’ll find the amazing Pamper Street. They have everything you need for a fresh new festival look: face painting, nail art, biodegradable glitter, henna tattoos and even a pop-up barber shop!
