Beardyman & LeeN

09.08.17

Having made a series of brand new albums live on festival main stages throughout Europe this summer, Beardyman and LeeN have decided they want the chance to play a one-off intimate gig to get as interactive as possible with a small number of like-minded people.
This is a unique chance to be part of the creative process with 2 of the UK’s best freestyle improvisors at the top of their game. Be more involved in their creative process than ever before and possibly ever again. There will only be 90 tickets for sale and they will sell out fast so get booking now to avoid disappointment.
Don’t miss the chance to be part of the inspiration for an evening of improvised music.
