Children from Rosemary Works Primary school busked and sold art work to raise money for Comic Relief.
Around 12 children, aged between six to nine-years-old, went to Spitalfields Market, Crispin Place, Spitalfields on Friday.
They sang eight songs by musicians White Stripes, The Beatles, Elvis Presley, Katy Perry and Julian Lennon, which they had practised for six weeks before going down.
They also sold bookmarks and coasters made in the style of Dutch graphic artist M.C. Escher who they had been studying at the school in Branch Place, De Beauvoir, Hackney.
The children raised £325 in the three hours they were there.
Arts coordinator Paul Jones said: “It was a wet and cold day abut that didn’t dampen our spirits.
“The kids fought through and worked continuously for three hours singing and selling art work.
