Battle 2023

On Saturday 28 January 2023 at Conway Hall, young people from across London and Essex came together to compete against one another in our annual hip hop event, Battle. The day started with a morning of high energy workshops and games, before students battled it out in front of a packed out audience in the afternoon.
