Fatboy Slim said: “I’ve played some exciting and unique places around the world from Bondi Beach to The Great Wall of China to 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.”
Supported by and Hove and Portslade MP Mike Weatherley, House The House is a new charitable parliamentary initiative which aims to inspire the dance community to champion real change in communities.
