London’s office workers got the surprise of their lives on Wednesday, November 19, when they were treated to a performance by Welsh crooner Sir Tom Jones.

The 68-year-old was busking outside the Royal Festival Hall to raise money for Cancer Research UK as part of the BBC Two Culture Show’s Busking Challenge, which sees leading acts perform in public places for charity. Buckets were passed round the 1,000 people who gathered to watch the 15 minute set, with £460 being raised.

“This is the first busking I have ever done,” he said. “This is for cancer research.”

Accompanied by an acoustic guitar, Jones performed his greatest hits It’s Not Unusual and Green Green Grass of Home, plus his own version of Jerry Lee Lewis’ hit Great Balls Of Fire.
