Indigo bids goodbye to Malcolm Carlton, our musical director and maestro since our inception,  who is leaving to pursue and concentrate on his own professional projects, having devoted 16 years to Indigo, and 20 years to community music in Redditch!"   

A Huge Thank You . . .

 . . . to everyone who has been a part of Indigo this year. To those who have performed, participated in workshops and activities, moved endless equipment, props and chairs, set up and run Pop Up Venues, techies, musicians, audiences, workshop leaders and assistants, fundraisers, supporters, the list goes on . . . we are eternally grateful to the community which makes us what we are.

We look forward to 2018 and beyond, at the centre of our town, where our amazing Indigo community can do its best work - and we have lots of exciting projects planned.
