Elbow brought a spectacular end to the second day of the Latitude Festival this evening.
In a firework-filled conclusion they delighted thousands who had gathered to see them as the light faded.
Playing their biggest hits with support from a string quartet and “emergency” horn section they had the crowd swaying, clapping and cheering for more.
It had been a rainy day at Henham Park but at around 8pm the sun started to shine, and it stayed fine as Elbow played as darkness.
For a review of Elbow and more photos from today at Latitude Festival, see the EDP website tomorrow.
As the gates to the Royal Hospital Gardens at Chelsea opened to the world’s media yesterday, with a frenzy of activity as photographers and camera crews vied for the best vantage points, there was also a very palpable sense of relief among the hundreds of nurserymen and women who have come to exhibit their prize horticultural specimens that their stands were complete and looking their very best.
