Bedales is delighted to welcome BLINQ, a supergroup of top solo vocalists with a truly international jazz pianist and Mercury Prize nominee 2011, to play in concert at The Olivier Theatre on Monday 24 January at 8pm.

The launch of BLINQ, comprising Brendan Reilly, Liane Carroll, Ian Shaw and Natalie Williams (vocals) and Gwilym Simcock (piano), at Ronnie Scott’s in August 2011 had critics savouring their superlatives. The festival programmers of Cologne, Hamburg and Montreux were advised to book without delay. Tickets are £14 and £12 for concessions, and are available from the theatre on 01730 711511 or by emailing tickets@bedales.org.uk.
