The venue will be St John-at-Hackney Church.

The low-key acoustic gigs see big name stars performing in the Lower Clapton Road Church to raise money for the learning disability charity.

Curated by Mencap Ambassador and BBC Radio 2 DJ Jo Whiley, the concerts will run from Thursday November 20 to Tuesday November 25, and the line-up will be announced by the end of the month.

For five years the concerts were held in Islington’s Union Chapel.
