Some Words and Pictures From Our Latitude Ticket Winner!
First off, I NEVER win anything! So imagine my surprise when I received the email from the good folk of Community News telling me that I'd won a pair of guest tickets to Latitude Festival. Woohoo! This was made doubly good as my son, Finn Doherty, was headlining the Inbetweener's stage.
The weekend was a whirlwind of fun and frivolity. The musical highlights for me included: Tinariwen, Goldfrapp, obviously Finn's set (find him here: https://www.musicglue.com/finn-doherty), Beans on Toast, Tom Grennan, Wesley Gonzalez, Jesus and the Marychain, Jack Garrett and, of course, Fat Boy Slim.
Throw into the mix a night of carefree dancing at Guilty Pleasures, a bit comedy, some outstanding spoken word (thank you Linton Kwesi Johnson and Holly McNish), sunshine, good friends and you get a fantastic cocktail mix of all-round great time.
Came home slightly broken after all the fun and lack of sleep, but thank you so much Community News - you guys rock!
