William Pryor Cambridge talkNext Sunday, August 19th, William Pryor, a friend of the late Syd Barrett, will be giving a talk in the Grantchester area of Cambridge. He will be talking about Syd, as well as his grandmother Gwen Raverat and the poet Rupert Brooke.

'Rupert, Gwen, Grantchester and Syd: Romantic Heroes of Cambridge' takes place at 5.30pm at The Orchard Tea Garden, Grantchester. Tickets at £9.50 can be bought from the Rupert Brooke Museum at The Orchard, or call 01603 438603, or email: This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it A buffet will follow the talk.

William Pryor believes there is something about Grantchester, the river, the meadows, and their role in so many young minds that demands the making of romantic myths. He looks at the myths that have built up around Rupert Brooke, Grantchester and Syd Barrett. As the grandson of Rupert's friend Gwen Raverat, a friend of Syd Barrett and an exile from Cambridge, William Pryor examines why we need these mythologies and how they intertwine.
