Roots Up!

The sensational Roots Up! Hip Hop festival will be brought to you by the high-energy team from Plymouth’s Street Factory during a spectacular show on Plymouth Hoe.

The event was scheduled to take place on the final night of the British Firework Championships, but was postponed as a mark of respect to those who lost their lives during the tragedy in Plymouth.

It will now take place at 6pm on Friday 19 November in Plymouth city centre - the day after the city’s Christmas lights have been switched on.
