London Philharmonic Orchestra play at Heathrow

Come spy with me! Passengers at Heathrow Terminal 5 were treated to a selection of the best of Bond from the London Philharmonic Orchestra this morning.

The London Philharmonic Orchestra surprised passengers this morning with musical renditions from the best Bond soundtracks over the years at Heathrow's Terminal 5.

The musicians played classics including Goldfinger , Nobody Does It Better , and Diamonds Are Forever to passengers waiting in Departures, many of whom were taking a half-term holiday. It's not the first time the orchestra have performed in the terminal; the musicians entertained passengers coming in and out of the country during the Olympics.

The idea behind the performance is to give passengers flying from Heathrow a memorable journey, and celebrate the patriotic spirit of Britain. Other highlights this year have included Myleene Klass entertaining passengers with her piano skills before the Olympics .

Anyone who missed the Bond-inspired performance will be pleased to hear the orchestra are returning to the Departures lounge on 6 December to warm up the crowds with a selection of classic Christmas songs.
