Kylie Minogue stunned drinkers when she played a gig in an English pub
The pop superstar turned up at the Ring O' Bells in Somerset, South West England, to perform a string of chart-topping hits as a favour to her record company Parlophone.

The 42-year-old Australian singer walked into the public house at 10.30pm and in a tiny alcove she belted out five songs.

She sang an acoustic version of her current hit 'All the Lovers' as well as '80s classics 'I Should Be So Lucky' and 'Locomotion'.

Kylie had turned up at the Ring O'Bells on her tour bus last Thursday (19.08.10) for a sound check before the doors opened.

Landlady Lauren Goddard, 32, told the Daily Express newspaper: 't was all quite surreal, to be honest. It's not the sort of thing you expect to see in a quiet local pub like this. We were sworn to secrecy and didn't even tell the staff until 30 minutes before the doors opened.

'Kylie was very friendly and down-to-earth. She didn't make any demands and she was very polite.'

The surprise acoustic concert was laid on by record bosses as the highlight of an away-day trip in Compton Martin for 120 of its staff.

Pub managers Lauren and Rueben Goddard agreed to stage the concert after being approached by Parlophone boss Miles Leonard, who lives in the village.

The fun-packed evening also included sets by Parlophone artists Tinie Tempah, Eliza Doolittle and Morning Parade - before Kylie appeared as the headline act.

Earlier in the evening, Tinie played his hit 'Pass Out' and new track 'Written In The Stars'.

Reuben, 25, told The Sun newspaper: 'The locals were shocked but we all had an evening we'll never forget. It's a bit out of the ordinary for round here."
