Save The Children Christmas Tree Sessions

Paul Weller heads a star-studded line-up.

Save the Children - Paul Weller

Save The Children’s annual Christmas Tree Sessions gig took place on Thursday night at London’s Union Chapel.

Over the course of the evening music fans were treated to sets from former Supergrass frontman Gaz Coombes, indie rockers Lanterns on the Lake and The Moons, jazz and soul star Will Heard and the legendary Paul Weller. Myleene Klass, who is an ambassador for Save The Children, took to the stage with Tim Burgess from The Charlatans and Holly Johnson closed the evening with The Power of Love, his huge hit with Frankie Goes To Hollywood.

BBC Radio 6’s Lauren Laverne hosted the evening and Caitlin Moran, Chris Addison, Dom Joly and Peter Serafinowicz gave Christmas readings throughout the night.

Lauren 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!”
