The headliners for this year's Little Noise Sessions in London have been confirmed. Joining Razorlight, Kasabian and Keane will be Glasvegas, The Fratellis and James Morrisson.

The acoustic sessions, which take place at the Islington's Union Chapel from November 8-18, serve to raise funds and awareness for Mencap, a UK based charity which works with people with learning disabilities.

Entering its third year, the event, which runs over eleven consecutive nights will also feature performances from Stereophonics, Florence and the Machine, Esser, Seasick Steve, Sam Beeton, The Script, Bryn Christopher and Red Light Company.

Jo Williams, chief executive of Mencap said, "Mencap's Little Noise Sessions is a really important event for learning disability. Not only does it help raise money to ensure we can support people with a learning disability, but it raises the profile of the challenges that the 1.5 million with a learning disability face."

"We are hugely grateful to all the acts who freely give their time and effort, and especially to Jo Whiley, Mencap's ambassador, who puts in a huge amount of time and effort to help organise and curate the event."

"Little Noise means that we can give artists and potential artists with a learning disability, who normally face massive barriers, the opportunity to develop their skills and get opportunities in the creative industries."
