Street Factory performance brings together young civilian and service people as part of Community Covenant.

Young people from both military and civilian families are taking part in a hip hop performance as part of the Community Covenant for Plymouth.

Local group Street Factory will be performing at the event at Plymouth Life Centre on Saturday 6 December. Street Factory were given funding under the Community Covenant to run a year project to use hip hop to unite civilians and young people from service families.

Councillor Michael Fox, Lord Mayor of Plymouth, said:  “The Community Covenant Grant Scheme was set up to help provide funding for local projects that bring together civilian and armed forces communities.

“The project with Street Factory is a great example of how the Community Covenant is benefiting young people in Plymouth.”

Tickets for the event are £3 and the performance starts at 7pm. There will also be another performance on Sunday 7th December.
