Wish You Were ChristmasWell, it's that time of year when would like to take this opportunity to thank you all so much for your support and kindness - the site is done purely for you, and as the current version of the site alone approaches 100 million visitors (with the previous version of the site reaching an additional 21 million visitor), we look forward to continuing to bring you news and information from the Floydian world!

Whatever your plans for Christmas, the Holidays, and the New Year we hope you have a peaceful, happy and healthy time, and here's to 2024! Roger Waters has finished tour his striking This Is Not A Drill, for now at least, and as he mentioned at the Palladium in October, he has written his memoirs. Will we see those next year - and will he release any new material, a live recording from the TINAD tour, or even perform more shows? As we now know, Nick Mason's Saucerful Of Secrets head out on the road again after such a superb 2022/2023 tour, with six dates just announced for July 2024, in Italy. Hopefully there will be some gigs elsewhere too! As for David Gilmour, there's just been a number of pictures posted of him in a studio, which bodes well for the potential of something from him. And, as we know from previous years, there's also often the odd surprise here and there as well, so who knows - it could be another busy year!

Talking of Nick Mason - he is hosting another open weekend at his home in Corsham, Wiltshire, to raise vital funds for The Wiltshire Bobby Van Trust and Wiltshire Air Ambulance. Being held on Saturday 8th June & Sunday 9th June, the day offers a fabulous day out for the whole family: gardens to meander through, Nick's outstanding classic and super cars on show, farm animals to visit, live music (NOT Nick playing though!), children's entertainment, face painting, a bouncy castle plus more, a fantastic array of stalls to browse and shop - such as plant stalls, clothing, homeware, local food and wine products, a selection of food stalls from BBQ to Smoked Salmon. Tea, coffee and cakes are available throughout the day. Dogs are allowed but must be kept on leads. Tickets for this can be bought through this link, now. They tend to sell out so we urge you to buy them soon to avoid disappointment.

For those near the Leicester area of England, the UK's National Space Centre (which is located in the city) is hosting the fulldome planetarium show of The Dark Side Of The Moon, on January 20th, 2024. With full 360 degree visuals, and the latest audio remastering being used, it promises to be a great evening. Tickets for the two performances that evening (7pm and 8:30pm) can be bought through this direct link which also gives more information about the event, along with pictures of how it might look.

Finally, there's an item interest which should help you tick away the moments that make up what may otherwise be dull days over the holiday period! It does rely on you having access to Netflix though. The recently released - and excellent - documentary Squaring The Circle (The Story Of Hipgnosis) which is available on Blu-ray and DVD, has also just been made available for all subscribers on Netflix through this link.
