The 8th Latitude Festival, Henham Park, Southwold, Suffolk - 17th-20th July 2013

It's our fourth outing to local-ish music-and-arts festival Latitude, just up the road near Southwold. It's also the first with the camper van, which makes a huge difference on account of not having to haul a ton of guff a good mile from the car park, and the first with two sprogs (Fred having been solo in 2009 and 2010).
