Paul Weller and former Supergrass frontman Gaz Coombes are both set to perform at this year's Christmas Tree Sessions for Save The Children.

The special charity gig will take place at London's Union Chapel on December 5 and will also see appearances from Lanterns On The Lake, The Moons and Will Heard. BBC Radio 6 Music DJ Lauren Laverne has curated the event, which see artists backed by the London Metropolitan Orchestra alongside readings from Caitlin Moran and comedians Chris Addison, Dom Joly and Peter Serafinowicz. Proceeds from the evening will go to the charity's Syria Crisis Appeal. For more information and ticket details visit savethechildren.org.uk.

Meanwhile, one of this year's performers - Gaz Coombes - has previously said that he currently has 'no interest' in a Supergrass reunion, but added: "Who knows what I'll say in five years?" The musician released his debut solo album, 'Here Come The Bombs' in May 2012.
