PINK Floyd fans have a treat in store with the Great Gig in the Sky set to perform at the Guildhall, Axminster.

The band features musicians from various bands and includes Jess Upton on vocals for the eponymous track The Great Gig in the Sky.

She said: "We first performed about 13 years ago, at a sell out show at the Weymouth Pavilion. We were all really big fans of the band, with most of us having seen them at some point. It started out as something that we just all really wanted to do for fun, and then we thought why not make a show out of it?

"Since then we're put on shows every couple of years, but recently we've decided that we all loved doing it so much, that we would try and do it on a more regular basis.

"So we've got gigs up and down the country for nearly every month of this year. When we first started we did the Dark Side of the Moon and a few other favourites like Shine On and The Wall, but now we're doing a much broader range of their songs"

The gig will take place on Thursday, May 22 and tickets cost £10 and can be bought on the door.
