Fatboy Slim will DJ at the House of Commons

Fatboy Slim has been booked for the unlikeliest of venues - the House of Commons.

The Right Here, Right Now star will become the first DJ to perform in the Commons with the gig next month.

The DJ, aka Norman Cook, who will be playing at the final of the House The House competition, said: "I've played some exciting and unique places around the world, from Bondi Beach to the Great Wall of China to an igloo, but playing in the House of Commons might be the most unique to date."

He added: "Music is a huge part of my life and to give something back in this way is amazing."

The Praise You creator will perform on March 6 at the terrace bar as the support act for the winner of DJ competition House The House, in aid of the Last Night A DJ Saved My Life Foundation.

He said he was a "proud supporter" of the charity initiative, which is aimed at getting young people involved in their communities.

Mike Weatherley, the MP for Hove and Portslade, 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."

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Sagittarius:

Expressing your creative side is strongly advised. Take this opportunity to write, paint or play music. Relatives may not appreciate your work, but that doesn't matter. The important thing is to satisfy your own taste. People who are daring and experimental will appreciate your efforts. Don't be surprised if you're given a chance to showcase your work in a magazine, boutique or gallery. Fame and acclaim can be yours, so long as you're willing to follow your instincts.More
