The Gala Performance was held in Trinity College Chapel, Completed in 1567, during the reign of Elizabeth I, Trinity College Chapel is a magnificent space that plays host to rich and diverse architectural features. Original Tudor woodwork, Victorian coloured glass windows, and one of only two modern organs by Metzler found in Britain, are all presided over by an imposing painting by early 19th century American artist Benjamin West.

On the final night of The City Wakes, the statues of Isaac Newton and Lord Tennyson had the good fortune of sharing their illustrious home with psychedelic light effects and the inimitable sounds of Syd Barrett. The gala performance was a weirdly apt fusion of the divergent faces of Cambridge life.
