DJ Fatboy Slim will perform in Brighton early next year to raise funds for the Martlets Hospice charity.

Brighton resident Fatboy Slim (whose real name is Norman Cook) will perform a three-hour DJ set at The Arch (formerly The Coliseum) in Brighton on Saturday, January 18.

The event starts at 10pm on January 18 and goes through to 4am on January 19. It is said that Fatboy Slim will perform an extended three hour set.

All ticket sales will go to the Martlets Hospice local charity, of which Fatboy Slim is an ambassador.

There have been clues that Fatboy Slim, who has not released an album since 2004, might return to action in Brighton.

In June he gave a surprise performance to school leavers at his beachfront café in Hove Lagoon, in the same month that he released a new single, The Return to the Valley of Right Now.

In 2002 a quarter of a million people flocked to Brighton Beach for Fatboy Slim’s Big Beach Boutique II.

Norman Cook has been an ambassador for the Martlets Hospice since March 2018, though he had been supporting the charity long before then.

Martlets Hospice is a local charity that provides terminally ill people in Brighton and Hove, and surrounding areas, with care and support.

Speaking in 2018, Norman said: “I’ve known about Martlets for some time, having had a family member need their care.

“So I know first-hand that what Martlets does for people and their families is, indeed, life-changing.
