An INAUGURAL music festival in Bisley has been hailed as a great success by organisers.

Bis-up, a music, beer and cider festival, was held at King George V playing fields on June 1.

Performances were made by Ben Burwell, The Abstracts, The Peanut Shuffle Club, Post Normality and The Rock Doctors.

There were also classic cars and tractors on display and an inflatable 'village pub'.

Tim Hurst, festival committee member, said: “We wanted to create a mid-year event for the local community and people, something to bring everyone together. From the attendance on the day, and all the positive feedback we’ve had so far, we achieved just that – a great day out, that offered something for everyone. We limited ourselves to just 500 attendees this year but are excited to make it even bigger and better for next year.

We want to give a big thank you to our sponsors at Gigaclear, Holbrook Garage, CR Signs, Ace Comfort Cooling and Graduate Gardeners who helped make the very first Bis’up possible!

"We also couldn’t be prouder of the community spirit shown across the planning, set-up and running of the day, and all the volunteers who gave up their time and expertise to help everything go off without a hitch. Special mention to Julian Partridge at the Stirrup Cup for his continued support.”
