Henham Park, Suffolk -For new music, theatre and comedy devotees

Lats! It’s a Suffolk institution in its 11th year, and I know a lot of us Norwich folk will be rocking up in Henham Park come July - you’ll defo bump into people you know. Located in beautiful fields and forests, with a lake and coloured sheep, it’s a great festival if you just want to chill with your kids or rock out til dawn to John Grant and New Order up at the Obelisk Stage. Music-wise it’s a cornucopia of genres, with Huw Stephens curating new acts like Kiran Leonard and Babeheaven on the Lake Stage, late night DJ sets from Jungle, David Rodigan and Mike Skinner and the Radio 6 tent hosting the likes of Grimes, Slaves and Roots Manuva. You can even catch Pantha du Prince, or Norwich’s own Let’s Eat Grandma at the Sunrise Arena nestled in the woods. To keep your stamina up, nosh on corn on the cob, venison burgers, special beers, pies and so many more options it might well take you from breakfast to dinner to decide what to eat. Te theatre line up this year is strong, with shows from Circa and the Young Vic. Catch poets Henry Normal, John Hegley and Norwich’s Luke Wright and John Osbourne. Te Big Screen is curated this year by Glen Matlock, Stephen Mallinder and Don Letts, celebrating the 40 year anniversary of the birth of punk.

Cherry Hinton Hall, Cambs -For a classy taste of our planet’s folk tunes

Cambridge Folk festival has been going since 1965 and has built up a loyal following not only amongst ‘folk’ folk, but also for people just looking for a sunny summer weekend spent discovering top quality world artists. Tis year’s line up on their two main stages is second to none, with internationally renowned names like Christy Moore, Mary Chapin Carpenter and Baaba Maal playing. Gogol Bordello will be bringing their crazy soundz along, and the elegant Imelda May will no doubt wow the crowds. Charles Bradley provides some wonderful soul music, and Chris Wood a contemporary take on traditional folk music. It’s definitely worth checking out Te Hub, a music making area for young people, whilst Te Den is dedicated to performances from young emerging talent. Te Club Tent’s acoustic stage features showcases from regional folk clubs and Te Flower Garden in front of Cherry Hinton Hall is perfect for a relaxing singaround or listening to storytellers. Check out Te People’s Front Room, a cosy melting pot of collective creativity, and be entertained by walkabouts from street theatre companies. Bring your instruments, join in with a ceilidh and learn how to juggle too. In the campsite you’ll find a free crèche and paddling pool. Eatswise, gorge yourself on traditional fish n chips or delve into a wide variety of other food stalls. Tis classy, gentle festival is located on the outskirts of Cambridge just over an hour from Norwich, so a good option for a folky jaunt out of the city.
