The National Theatre of Scotland, the Opera Group and 1927 have joined the roster of companies performing at this year’s Latitude Festival.

The National Theatre of Scotland, now celebrating their fifth year, is making their first visit to the festival, while the company’s Associate Director John Tiffany (director of the nigh on universally adored Black Watch) will be giving a lecture about theatre’s ability to evolve at the festival’s Literary Salon. 1927 will be bringing their distinctive blend of music, animation and performance with their wickedly entertaining show, The Animals and Children Took to The Streets, while the Opera Group will be performing Seven Angels, a piece based on Milton’s Paradise Lost.

They’ll join a typically eclectic and wide-ranging theatre line-up that already includes work from Theatre Delicatessen, Forest Fringe, the Bush Theatre (who will be staging Anthony Weigh’s The Flooded Grave in a hidden location after dark), Paines Plough and Fuel. Clean Break will be there with two plays from their well-received Charged season and there will be an opportunity to see the Theatre Uncut plays following their recent staging at Southwark Playhouse.

Further arts additions to this year’s bill include Adam Buxton, Simon Munnery and Lucy Porter in the Comedy Arena and Les Enfants Terribles, who will be creating a new piece for the Faraway Forest. Robin Ince will be presenting Double Science in the Literary Arena, with guests including Ben Goldacre.

The Latitude Festival, now in its sixth year, runs from the 14th-17th July at Henham Park, Southwold, Suffolk. For tickets and further information, visit: Latitude Festival
