Will Whisson / Jack Mason

What a brilliant night we had a Camberley Theatre last night.

Will Whisson played first and was awesome. Wonderful guitar playing and vocals, creating grooves on his loop pedal whilst winning over and converting the Camberley audience. He’ll be back to play on June 21st as part of the film festival at the C.I.F., back at the theatre – don’t miss him!

CIF Live 22nd March -11

CIF Live 22nd March -1CIF Live 22nd March -7Will warmed us up perfectly for local hero Jack Mason. Jack favoured a set playing guitar rather than using backing tracks tonight and I think everyone was blown away by his guitar and vocal skills, as he took through a wonderful set, even including a version of ‘Duelling Banjos’!  Jack will be performing at the C.I.F. on Friday 22nd June, at The Carpenters Arms.

Thanks so much!

To everyone who came to the #CIFLive party last night! We all had an awesome night. The music was amazing – Joe Waller, Martha Paton and Jack Francis were all wonderful and an exciting sight of just some of the music that will be across the pubs and venues as part of the  Camberley International Festival in June.

Here’s Joe Waller and his band.

The Mayor, Cllr John Winterton was on hand to present our Youth Marketing Academy – students from the lower 6th of Collingwood School in Camberley, with their certificates. They helped promote the party using skills in modern marketing they learned via the course set up by Surrey Heath Borough Council.

Thanks to Laura Woodrow for the photos.
