Interstellar benefit eveningOn Thursday June 17th the Tunbridge Wells Forum will be playing host to four bands all inspired by the late Syd Barrett, the original singer, songwriter and lead guitarist in Pink Floyd. The four bands have come out in force to raise money for the Syd Barrett Fund, set up by his sister Rosemary Breen following his death in 2006. The fund exists to support the work of Escape Artists, a socially inclusive arts charity, based in Cambridgeshire and London.

The event is part of the Syd Barrett Fund's activity to mark forty years since Syd's debut solo album was released, something which the UK's number 1 music magazine Mojo published a cover feature celebrating earlier this year. The Tunbridge Wells Forum show follows a London to Cambridge walk organised by the Fund, which saw a group of Syd Barrett fans raise more than £2600 over Easter.

Tickets are £7, and can be bought now from
