Pink Floyd at the Anchor

During the sixties the Anchor was home to local jazz bands. Students would come and enjoy the resident house band, one particular student was Keith Barrett who seemed particularly star stuck on the bands drummer, named Sid. Soon he adopted the nickname Little Sid , spelt with a y to avoid any confusion . “Syd” went on to form one of the most influential bands in the history of music; the mighty Pink Floyd. Syd passed away in 2006 but locals still recall vividly tales of nights in the Anchor with a true musical genius.
