The acts nominated for this year's Barclaycard Mercury Prize have been co-headlining at a series of charity gigs ahead of the ceremony next month.

The next in the series will see The Maccabees, Michael Kiwanuka and Alt-J co-headlining the Albums of the Year Gig on Wednesday October 24.

The show at LSO St Luke's in London is to help raise money for War Child - so although the gig is free there is a compulsory £10 donation to the charity to help support the fantastic work they do assisting children affected by conflict around the world.

The Barclaycard Mercury Prize Awards Show takes place on Thursday November 1.
