For a second year running, In The Dark is teaming up with Samara Tompsett and the Morning collective to create a unique listening space in the Latitude Festival. We’ll be pitching up in the Faraway Forest with the “Tell Tale Tit”, a woven wicker world encompassing a recording studio and swinging listening portals.

As well as our classic listening sessions (with now obligatory Latitude swings), during the early hours of the day visitors will be invited to have their own stories recorded and edited to be played later as part of our listening programme.
