Let Little Noise Commence 23rd November, 2011

Mencap’s Little Noise Sessions sponsored by ASUS and curated by Mencap ambassador Jo Whiley kicked off with a bang last night.  Held at iconic church, St John-at-Hackney, the first of six shows saw Elbow headlining last night and, as many tweeps this morning commented, it was indeed epic.

With the St John-at-Hackney priest blessing the event, it would have been impossible for the gig to not go as well as it did.

The fundraising festival runs from tonight until Sunday and also includes gigs from the likes of rapper Example, pop diva Goldfrapp, Coldplay’s front man Chris Martin, and Scottish Mercury Music Prize nominee King Creosote.

Sponsors ASUS have tied it in with their fantastic campaign In Search of Incredible promoting their new N series of laptops and Zenbooks that have incredible sound systems developed with Bang & Olufsen.

We can’t wait to see how the rest of the week turns out!
