TOM JONES is to play at a special intimate gig in the city this evening.

The Welshman, who is known for hit singles Sexbomb, It's Not Unusual and What's New Pussycat, will be performing at Chalk in Pool Valley, Brighton.

The show has been organised by record store Resident Brighton and record label One Inch Badge, who have booked the famed singer to mark the release of his album Surrounded By Time.

The album was first released back in April but this marks the first time the songs have been performed live.
