Paul Weller, Tim Burgess and Gaz Coombes make surprise charity appearance

Paul Weller and former Supergrass frontman Gaz Coombes performed at Save The Children’s Christmas Tree Sessions gig on Thursday night, with Charlatans frontman Tim Burgess joining Myleene Klass onstage for a duet.

BBC Radio 6 DJ Lauren Laverne curated and hosted the night, which also saw appearances from Dom Joly, Chris Addison and Peter Serafinowicz, as well as readings from writer Caitlin Moran.

Laverne said: Gaz Coombes and Paul Weller were brilliant live and it’s not often you get the chance to see such big names like Holly Johnson singing classics like The Power of Love in such an intimate venue. Save the Children’s Christmas Tree Sessions was a great night, for a great cause and I hope everyone enjoyed it as much as I did!”
