Norwich-based arts charity Cultureworks East are hosting the Inbetweeners area at Latitude once again, an exclusive space for teenagers where creative workshops will be taking place.

Teenagers will have the opportunity to become journalists, musicians, fashion designers, DJs and filmmakers.

Editorial staff from the EDP and Norwich Evening News will be on hand to show youngsters what it's like to be a reporter, offering a chance to have a go at covering the festival and capture great photos.

'It's a great couple of hours and the kids get the chance to write, take photos, shoot videos and ultimately go on a brilliant adventure, which is what journalism is. We're delighted to be involved again.'

Here's a look at some of the other activities on offer:

• Music & Media

Whether you are interested in making and recording your own songs or fancy getting behind the decks, a professional DJ will have you beat-matching before you know it. If music's not for you, why not have a go at making a short film with Stop Frame Animation or shoot your own silent movie/zombie flick with the BFI.

• Fashion Wonderland

Got a passion for fashion? Create, customize and style yourself in the Fashion Wonderland. Here you'll be able to try silk screen printing a T-shirt and customising clothing with the Glitter Junkies. There will also be opportunities to make a festival head dress and have a go at henna.

• The Hide Out

Open from 11am-7pm each day, the hideout space hidden high in the hilltops is a great place to hang out with friends. Listen to music, play a game of table tennis or get up close and meet industry pros.
