A PORTSMOUTH church will host a gig by a tribute band to support its appeal to become more accessible.

The band, ‘Wish We Were Pink Floyd’, will be playing at St Mark’s Church in North End from 7pm on October 14.

The group has earned a reputation for playing passionate covers of Pink Floyd, and for a state-of-the-art lighting show.

They’ll be playing in support of the Every Square Inch vision for St Mark’s Church.

Ever since the church was built in 1970, the ramps leading up to the church have caused problems for those entering. The plan is to replace them with a street entrance and lift.

It’s part of the £330,000 project which has already seen the committee room, parish office and choir vestry refurbished, and the former scout hut turned into a children’s activity centre run by Teeny Town.

Tickets for the gig are £6 or £8, available on 023-9267 8538. The ticket price includes refreshments, but no alcoholic drinks are allowed. This show features lasers, flashing lights and smoke haze.
