They will be joined by Emile Sande, Michael Kiwanuka, Ben Howard and Bebe Black on the night.

Mencap ambassador Jo added: "We are delighted to welcome the return of Chris Martin and Jonny Buckland to headline an extra special night for Mencap's Little Noise Sessions. With a week of unbelievable shows, this year is set to be one of the most exciting and inspiring we've had to date. I can't wait!"
