Children and young people will get the chance to work towards their Arts Award at Latitude once again as the festival, an Arts Award Supporter, welcomes Arts Award for the third year in a row.

Latitude, which takes place each July in Henham Park, Suffolk, returns for its 10th edition. Arts Award also turns 10 this year and will be marking the occasion with 10 months of celebratory activities starting in October.

At Latitude, young festival-goers can get involved at three bases:

  • Arts Award Discover breakfast club - Enchanted Garden, from 8.30am
  • Arts workshops at the Arts Award tent - Kids Area
  • Arts Award Voice hub - Inbetweeners Teen Area

From their shed in the Inbetweeners Teen Area, the Arts Award Voice team will be on hand to answer questions about doing an Arts Award and guide those already working towards a qualification to the best opportunities on offer at the festival.

Culture Works East, who run the Inbetweeners Teen Area, are offering Arts Award at all levels on site, including Arts Award Discover on Latitude Schools Day, plus projects enabling young people to achieve Explore, Bronze, Silver and Gold levels, including Creative Arts East Young Promoters organising events and programming performances and workshops. Latitude ticket holders can sign up for a multi media Explore project at the Inbetweeners Gazebo.

Diana Walton, Arts Award Development Lead, said "We're thrilled to share our birthday with Latitude. In this special year, Arts Award is offering an even wider choice of activities, so children and young people can expect spade-loads of opportunities for artistic fun and creative growth."

Arts Award supports young people to develop as artists and arts leaders. Young people aged up to 25 of all abilities and interests can gain an Arts Award through any arts, media or cultural activity.

Arts Award has five levels, four of which are on the QCF (Qualifications and Credit Framework). The award assesses art form knowledge and understanding, creativity and communication skills and helps to prepare young people for further education and employment. Trained Arts Award advisers (usually a professional artist, teacher or youth worker) support young people to achieve their aspirations. Arts Award is managed by Trinity College London in association with Arts Council England working with 10 regional Bridge organisations.

Latitude Festival takes place at Henham Park in Suffolk from July 16 to 19. Latitude Schools Day is on Friday, July 17. Find out more at
