Just when you're thinking pub gigs can't get any better...along come The Charlatans to give guests an acoustic set.

The band's Tim Burgess and Mark Collins took to the stage for an acoustic set at the Anchor, Bankside, London, after Radio X's live broadcast with Johnny Vaughan from the Greene King pub.

General manager of the Anchor, John Gohery, said: "The event was a real success and the guests really enjoyed the intimate performance by Tim and Mark from The Charlatans as well as the live broadcast with Johnny Vaughan. It's been difficult to keep it a secret so I'm really pleased it was such a success."

It was the second Radio X live broadcast organised by Greene King, after Simon Fowler and Oscar Harrison from Ocean Colour Scene performed an intimate gig in a Manchester pub in June.

The broadcasts form part of the summer long partnership between the pub company and Radio X. The collaboration has already seen the release of an exclusive new ale, Amplified, which is available in more than 700 pubs across the UK.
