Latitude 2016 announce Literary and Wellcome Trust line-up

Today, Thursday 9th June, the UK’s finest multi-arts festival Latitude is delighted to announce the Literary Arena, Wellcome Trust Hub, and further Poetry names performing at this year’s event, which takes place from Thursday 14th to Sunday 17th July 2016 in the stunning grounds of Henham Park, Suffolk.

 

Latitude are thrilled to welcome political economist, writer, columnist and former editor-in-chief of The Observer, Will Hutton to the Literary Arena, where he will be discussing how a fundamental social change is required to defeat the anxiety epidemic gripping society today.

 

Bestselling author Ben MacIntyre will be sharing his research behind A Spy Amongst Friends, the definitive biography of Kim Philby, the most notorious British defector and Soviet mole in history. MacIntyre was given unprecedented access to newly released MI5 files, previously unseen family papers, and cooperation of former officers of MI6 and the CIA – unlocking what is perhaps the last great secret of the Cold War.

 

The Victoria & Albert Museum will present a preview of their forthcoming major exhibition You Say You Want a Revolution? Records and Rebels 1966 – 70. Assistant Curator Elisa Bailey will explore the era-defining significance and impact of the late 1960s, expressed through some of the greatest music and performances of the 20th century alongside fashion, film, design and political activism.

 

In a talk entitled From Prince to Punk, Deirdre Murphy, Senior Curator at the Historic Royal Palaces, will talk about fashion’s tribes: each day we dress ourselves, our clothes a marker expressing both our individuality and the group we identify with. Deirdre will explore these ideas across history; the look, the individuals and the idols that have epitomised fashion’s most recognisable tribes. There is so much more to see across the Literary Arena, find a full line up below and tickets are available here.
