The annual Little Noise Sessions series of acoustic charity concerts for Mencap, which have been running since 2006, are set to resume next month with gigs from Tom Jones, Hurts and Paolo Nutini.

The acts will play shows at the Union Chapel venue as part of the charity gig series curated by Jo Whiley, with more shows at the venue set to be announced soon. The proceeds of ticket sales are donated to the charity Mencap (

In previous years, the Little Noise Sessions have boasted an impressive roll of honour with headliners including Amy Winehouse, Florence and the Machine, Snow Patrol and Coldplay. Paolo Nutini returns to the event nearly four years to the day after becoming only the third act to headline back in 2006, after opening gigs by KT Tunstall and The Kooks.

This year, Tom Jones will play on Monday 15th November, with Nutini performing on 16th November and Hurts on Wednesday 17th. Paolo Nutini will be supported by Rumer and Michael Kiwanuka, while Hurts will be joined by Clare Maguire and Joe Worricker, with the special guests for the Tom Jones night yet to be announced.

Tickets go on general sale at 9am on Friday 18th November and will be available below.
