Some 1,500 revellers turned out to a festival which started out in a back garden in 2006.

LeeFest, held at Highams Hill Farm in Warlingham, near Biggin Hill, at the weekend was hailed as a ‘complete success’ by organisers.

The festival is non-profit, with all proceeds going back into the event or to charity Kids Company, which works with vulnerable youngsters.

Founder Lee Denny, from Beckenham, started the festival with just 25 people six years ago but has since recruited several friends to help with the event.

Organiser David Hayes said: “It was brilliant, we had a fantastic time. It was a complete success. It was packed out.

“Local band Professor Penguin was one of the highlights. Some of the bigger bands were saying how this was one of the best small festivals they have played.”

Mr Hayes says the group are planning on holding a “bigger and better event next year”.

He added: “We will be starting discussions about next year next week. We will definitely be back next year with a two or even three day event.”
