A Tribute To Syd Barrett Has been Unveiled In Cambridge


A celebration of the life and work of Pink Floyd original member Syd Barrett has been unveiled. Named CODA it is the work of two artists, Clare Palmer and Spade Hopkins.

Syd grew up in Cambridge and was there at the very start of Pink Floyd but complications in his life saw him leaving the band in 1968. He returned to Cambridge but was rarely seen in public after that.

Syd Barrett died in 2006 and many have looked to honour him in the city. The artwork is on show at the Cambridge Corn Exchange which was where Syd played his final gig back in 1972.
