Dance DJ Norman Cook, aka Fatboy Slim will be performing at a rather unusual venue today.

The Hove DJ is set to play on the House of Commons Terrace as part of a project to encourage sixteen to twenty five year olds to get more involved in their communities.

Mike Weatherley, the Conservative MP for Hove and Portslade, has helped to organise the event.

House the House, run by the Last Night a DJ Saved My Life Foundation, encourages those aged between 16-25 years old to get more involved in their communities through grassroots initiatives and to raise awareness for community music projects.

Fatboy Slim said: "I've played some exciting and unique places around the world from Bondi Beach to The Great Wall of China and even an Igloo, but playing in the House of Commons might be the most unique to date.

"I'm a proud supporter of Last Night A DJ Saved My Life and the work that it's doing with House The House. Music is a huge part of my life and to give something back in this way is amazing."

Mike Weatherly said: "House The House is giving young people the chance to have a voice, to be recognised for their endeavours and to engage with their communities to create change from the grassroots up.

"Last Night A DJ Saved My Life and House The House are great examples of what the whole music industry can achieve in an innovative way."
