Happening, October 2008Back in October 2008, as part of The City Wakes festival celebrating Syd Barrett, five people who knew Syd in Cambridge in the sixties staged a happening as they had done forty years before, radical Beat poetry, free improvisation, words, sounds and people all in the moving womb of a Floydian light show by Pete Wynne Willson.

This was so much fun, and people seemed to very much like the experience, that they have decided to bring you another, inevitably different one (and as they say, "that's the point, isn't it?").

Again, Pete Wynne Willson will be doing the light show for All at Once: the Happening. Amongst other things, they'll have dancers, saxophonists, poets, a singing conductress, an electronic trumpeter, film and gongs. Taking part at the Chapel Arts Centre in Bath on May 23rd at 8pm, tickets for this truly unique event are now on sale from the Arts Centre itself through this link.
