Jo Whiley, the curator of Little Noise Sessions, said: "Mencap's Little Noise Sessions are a great opportunity to see big name bands play an acoustic gig in an intimate setting, whilst raising money for a really worthwhile cause."
The gigs will raise money for Mencap's Arts Awards scheme, which enables children and young people with a learning disability to take part in local arts projects, helping them grow in confidence and ability.
