Curated by Mencap Ambassador Jo Whiley, once again Mencap’s Little Noise Sessions will bring some of the hottest names in music, over six very special nights, to perform acoustically in the exquisite surroundings of the Union Chapel. The stripped back music mixed with the intimate venue gives the audience the chance to see something truly unique each night.

Kicking off Mencap’s Little Noise Sessions birthday celebrations in style on Monday 15th November is Welsh legend Tom Jones who will be performing a special set from his latest album Praise & Blame, enlisting support on the night from some special guests! The night will be opened by hot, new, soul songstress, Lauren Pritchard.

Previous acts that have taken to the Union Chapel stage include Bono and The Edge, Arctic Monkeys, Killers, Coldplay’s Chris Martin, Editors, Kasabian, Florence + The Machine, Noel Gallagher, Amy Winehouse, Stereophonics, Katy Perry, Snowpatrol and Lily Allen. Mencap’s Little Noise Sessions are famous for wowing audiences with a bumper line-up and a host of surprise guests and this year will be no exception.

Mencap ambassador Jo Whiley says: “Mencap’s Little Noise Sessions are back and it’s a very special year as we celebrate our 5th birthday with another stunning line up. Join us at the Chapel to witness some unbelievable gigs as well as raising money for this worthwhile cause.”

Mark Goldring, Mencap’s chief executive, commented: “We are thrilled to be celebrating the fifth year of the Little Noise Sessions. These intimate gigs not only raise much-needed funds for Mencap, they also help us to raise awareness of learning disability, which can be a hard disability to understand. The money raised will help Mencap continue to support thousands of people with a learning disability across the UK”.

This year will also see the return of Mencap’s Big Noise Sessions, which makes its London debut in December. Last year’s inaugural event saw bonafide superstars Coldplay perform a one-off homecoming gig in Exeter all in aid of Mencap.

There are 1.5 million people with a learning disability in the UK, who are among the most excluded and disadvantaged people in our society. Those with a learning disability find it harder than others to learn, understand and communicate. Mencap fights for the changes that people with a learning disability, their families and supporters want and need so that they can live their lives the way they choose.
