I'm a West London dweller, so I don't get to make it over to the East as much as I'd like, but it's a brilliant area of the city - full of bohemian people, open opinions and eclectic settings. Before I and my teensy tiny friend Ms O (really, she was delighted to tell me she's grown an inch and is now a full 5ft tall!) made our way to Hoxton Square we had a wander around the Old Street area which is full of street and wall art that changes with every visit and positively encourages artists to bring their creativity to the public eye.

He goes from serene and almost on the verge of tears, to frantic and electric, the audience staying with him the whole time. Whether it was one of his own songs or an accordion cover version of an 80s classic (he took requests from the audience which included Girls Girls Girls by Motley Crue and, when the decade was flexible, God Save The Queen by Sex Pistols), Webley performed with every inch of his being, and confirmed himself to me as a genuine human being, who adores his fans as much as they adore him. I can't thank him enough, because wholeheartedly, it was one of the best gigs I've ever been to. And we got a big sweaty hug from him at the end which just topped it off!
