Travel arrangements were announced yesterday for the Latitude festival next month at Henham Park, near Southwold.

The three-day event, starting on July 14,

features bands, comedians, poets and theatre groups.

Organisers Mean Fiddler are asking festival- goers to respect the environment and neighbours of the festival site.

The arrangements give advice for those travelling privately or by public transport.

There are special See Tickets coach services running direct to the site from all over the UK. Call 0870 060 3775 or visit www.seetickets.com or www.latitudefestival.co.uk. Combined coach/ festival tickets are also available at Mean Fiddler venues.

Shuttle bus services will run to and from the park and Halesworth railway station. For information visit www.latitudefestival.co.uk or call 0208 963 0940. For rail services visit www.thetrainline.com or call 08457 484950.

Those taking a car are urged to consider using the lift share scheme. If you have spare spaces in your car or you do not have to use your own car, visit www.latitudefestival.co.uk for more information.

Cycle racks will be available at the site at Green Gate 1 on the A145 Beccles-Blythburgh road and Yellow Gate 1 on the A12. Day ticket holders arriving by bike should use Green Gate 1.

Day ticket holders wanting to use public transport after the main entertainment are advised to plan their return journey ahead. There are no train services from Halesworth at that time of night, so the shuttle bus will not be running. Taxi firms should be asked to enter the site via Green Gate 1 on the A145 to pick up day ticket holders.

Any day ticket holder having difficulty plann-ing their journey home can contact hblake@

Routes to the festival will be well signposted. All motorists are warned that the A12 and A145 roads are likely to be busy with visitors heading towards Henham Park for the festival.
