Coldplay's Chris Martin and Jonny Buckland will be headlining a special charity show on Thursday 24 November, completing the line up for Little Noise Sessions 2011.

Manchester band Elbow last night kicked off this year’s Little Noise Sessions – a series of gigs in aid of Mencap.

The gig was the last of this year for the Mercury Prize-winning band. Frontman Guy Garvey said that it was the 20th year that the band had been performing together and led the audience in a sing-along of ‘Happy Birthday’ to Elbow.

The band performed a selection of their hits, including ‘Grounds for Divorce’, ‘Forget Myself’ and ‘One Day Like This’. They were supported by singer songwriter Maverick Sabre and fellow Mancunian Ren Harvieu.

Little Noise Sessions are now in their sixth year and are curated by DJ and Mencap ambassador Jo Whiley. This year’s performances take place in the beautiful surroundings of the St John at Hackney church in London, until Sunday 27 November.

Mencap works with people who suffer from learning disabilities, as well as with their families and carers. They fight to end discrimination and prejudice, and provide a wide range of services.

Other performers over the next few nights include Marina & The Diamonds, Goldfrapp, Example and Sinead O'Connor.
