Tom Chaplin – the chart-topping songwriter best known as the frontman of Keane – hit the streets of Britain over the weekend to treat fans to a series of busks with The Big Issue.

The Somewhere Only We Know singer performed three stripped-back sets at London’s Borough Market on Saturday – which you can watch in full, above – where he was also joined by the fantastic Choir With No Name, before rolling on to St Philip’s Cathedral in Birmingham on Sunday and Glasgow’s bustling Buchanan Street on Monday.
As well as treating hundreds of fans to some multi-million selling Keane favourites, Chaplin also performed his favourite Christmas dittys (including a cover of East 17’s festive juggernaut Stay Another Day) and songs from his debut solo festive album, Twelve Tales of Christmas (out now!).
“If you see a Big Issue seller, please buy a copy. Every week, for the rest of your life,” Chaplin told the 200+ crowd inside London’s Christmas-tastic Borough Market on Saturday. Sound advice.
