WISH you were here? The High Barn in Great Bardfield will be rocking to the sounds of Pink Floyd when a tribute band takes to the stage on Friday March 19.
After performing two sell-out gigs in Saffron Walden Town Hall, first in 2007 and again in 2008, The Pink Floyd Dimension is back by popular demand.
In preparation for a much-hyped return to Saffron Walden in May, the talented rockers will be playing a warm-up gig at High Barn.
But this isn't merely a rehearsal. The audience is in for a unique musical experience with a whole new set and show production which features the best-selling album Dark Side of the Moon in its entirety.
Bass player Alex Tsentides said: "We have got a slightly new line-up this year. We are now a seven-piece band and we've got a new member. Four of us are from Saffron Walden, but we have all played in the area for a long time.
"We're huge fans of Pink Floyd because it's the music we grew up with and the songs have a lot of depth to them."
