Bromley’s homegrown music festival Leefest opens on Friday for three days headlined by acts such as Noisettes, Delphic and London Grammar.

Organiser Lee Denny founded the festival from his Beckenham garden in 2006, when 150 turned up to watch a host of local bands.

This weekend more than 2,000 people are expected to turn out at Highams Hill Farm, off of Sheepbarn Lane, just outside Biggin Hill.

Though the crowds have increased, Lee still finds a place on the three-day bill for local acts including Keston Cobblers’ Club and Tall Tales.

Other entertainment on show includes stand-up comedy, poetry readings, glitter wrestling and paint fights.

The festival is non-profit and any surplus received this year from ticket sales will go to charity Kids Company - who work with vulnerable children across London to offer emotional and educational support.

Music starts from 2pm Friday, and finishes at midnight on Sunday.

Tickets for the weekend festival cost £70, with each individual day priced between £35 to £40. For more information, visit
