Florence Welch made a cameo appearance in the immersive theatre production The Drowned Man in London last night (March 25).

Welch, of Florence And The Machine, made a one-off, unannounced cameo appearance at Temple Studios as part of the cast in Punchdrunk's production.

Posting on Instagram about her performance, Welch wrote: "I learned that when all is dark. Only the moon can show you the way. ThankYou to #punchdrunk for letting me enter your world for the evening. #mrsstanfordlives"

The Drowned Man tells the story of Temple Studios – a crumbling monument to the golden age of film, in which movie stars mingle with hungry young upstarts and those rejected by the studio system attempt to forge a living. The production opened in 2013 and audience members are asked to wear a mask throughout the performance as they weave in and around the performers.

Florence Welch was last seen onstage when she crowdsurfed at Haim's show at London's Forum on December 10 last year. She came onto the stage that night at the very end of the band's set wearing a white Haim T-shirt before jumping into the crowd, followed by bass player Este Haim. Haim supported Florence + The Machine on their UK arena tour at the end of 2012.
