After the line up of the Lake Stage was revealed, Latitude would like to remind everyone that it prides itself on being a festival that showcases celebrated talents from across the arts spectrum. The event has added a number of prolific comedians including Simon Amstell, whilst The Cabaret Arena will feature the Soho Theatre hosting Meow Meow, Kyle Kinane and Tony Law alongside the indescribable Frisky & Mannish, the pop parodying duo.

The Waterfront Stage will host Atomos, the newest piece by choreographer Wayne McGregor whilst Dance East promise to bring an exciting experience to Pandora’s Playground. One intriguing new addition will take place in the Theatre Arena. Carl Grose’s and Told By An Idiot’s production of Never Try This At Home, a co-production between Told by an Idiot and Birmingham Repertory Theatre in association with Soho Theatre; an uncomfortably funny and shockingly ludicrous comedy which transports you back to 1970’s kids’ TV shows.

The full mammoth list of additions is below, featuring celebrated literates, authors, dancers, performers, artists, poets and more:
