Jo Whiley said, "I'm so excited to be hosting Mencap's Little Noise Sessions for the seventh year running! What's more, we're back at St John-at-Hackney Church, which inspired a truly electric atmosphere for fans and artists alike last year – there really is nothing more extraordinary than seeing big artists perform in such an intimate and beautiful venue. We have a week of incredible shows lined up, all in aid of Mencap and supporting people with a learning disability. I'll see you there."
