At a festival with more Waitrose Bag for Lifes and recycling bins than toilets, Timberlina proves to be a fitting end to Latitude. Tackling the "impending environmental catastrophe", Timberlina is an alt-drag act come eco-warrior come role model.

Returning to the Edinburgh Fringe for their second year, Lola and Jo want to try out some of their new sketches. Having recruited market research company FocusOn, Latitude Festival seems the perfect focus group. Experimenting with the form of sketch comedy, the focus group and audience response was not overwhelmingly positive.

So far, coverage of Latitude Festival has included theatre, music and comedy. At this point, a change of pace was needed. In the Speakeasy, poet Simon Armitage made for some easy (but also hard for others) listening. Reading from The Unaccompanied, this poetry collection explores 'a world on the brink'.

What an introduction to Latitude: entering a world unlike anything you've seen or heard before. And I'm not even talking about the Faraway Forest. From Sister's Grimm, Voices of the Amazon immerses audiences in the sights and sound of the Amazon. However, despite stunning choreography, the production doesn't shout so much as whisper

Shows written hundreds of years ago speak to today; others hit even closer to home, depicting actual events happening right now. The latest offering from the Donmar Warehouse speaks to the latter.
