The musicians of the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra swapped their violins and flutes today for water glasses. And if you're keen-eared you may have noticed that they also dropped Mozart and Beethoven - in favour of the likes of Katy Perry.
The special performance on the South Bank - dubbed the "H2 Orchestra" - was in benefit of the charity Water Aid.
Instead of cutting the grass this winter, gardeners who work on top of the Queen Elizabeth Hall, have invited some goats to do the job.

"The National is an extraordinary place, full of extraordinary people, and I look forward with relish to the task ahead - that being to fill our theatres with the most exciting, accessible and ground-breaking work our unique and broad community of artists has to offer."
Rufus Norris will take over in April 2015.

All the architects have responded really well to the brief and came up with some fantastic proposals for creating a new urban space under Hungerford Bridge.
The kind of features which skateboarders enjoy - ledges, steps, banks, blocks - are all there, but unlike in a conventional skatepark or skateplaza they have not been explicitly designed solely for skateboarding.
Skaters who use the Southbank Centre's site are refusing to look at the plans for its redevelopment. Speaking to the Evening Standard, a spokesman for campaign group 'Long Live Southbank' said:
"The conversation has always been about the preservation of the undercroft and that is a conservation they're refusing to have. Any conversation about Hungerford Bridge is a distraction from the real issue."
The Southbank Centre has revealed what a planned new site for skateboarders could look like. The centre wants to turn the existing space into shops with a new site located 120 metres away.
The space under Hungerford Bridge would be at least 10% larger than the existing site in the Queen Elizabeth Hall undercroft. It would also be free to use and hours 24 hours a day.
