Not to be missed - the Scissor Sisters to play a stripped back acoustic gig in aid of Mencap
Mencap’s Little Noise Sessions have announced an exciting, exuberant and extremely intimate winter themed show with the sensational Scissor Sisters at Bush Hall on December 4th. This is a chance to see the band play a stripped back acoustic gig, with all proceeds going to learning disability charity, Mencap.
“Scissor Sisters are ecstatic to join forces with our sister Jo Whiley for the Mencap Little Noise Session on 4th December. To stand behind Mencap's mission in supporting those with learning disabilities is a great honour."
Following this week’s spectacular series of gigs at the atmospheric Union Chapel in Islington, Mencap’s Little Noise Sessions sign off for the year by announcing a gig with one of the most enticing groups of the decade - Scissor Sisters. New York’s favourite disco pop troop are usually residents at huge venues worldwide, but for this very special exclusive show they will bring their giant sound to a much smaller stage. This will be a performance to make every fan feel like dancing, and a whole lot more!
“What better way to bring the annual Mencap's Little Noise Sessions to a close with another very special announcement. Join us on 4th December, as Scissor Sisters will play a surprise winter themed gig, giving fans a chance to see this world-class band play in front of a tiny audience of 350.”
