Following this year’s successful event, The Big London Night Walk will return on Friday 3rd March 2017. Register your interest for a Friday night with a difference, and change the lives of hardworking Big Issue vendors on their journeys away from homelessness.

It will be an experience like no other. Starting off in central London (venue TBC), the unique 12 mile route through central London will take you on a tour of the iconic sites at night. We’ll visit locations connected with our important work, and you’ll get the opportunity to hear personal insights from Big Issue vendors along the way.

Hot drinks and snacks will be provided along the way at our rest stops and the finish venue will remain open for participants until transport re-starts, as your finish time is likely to be between 2.30am and 5am, depending on your speed and time at rest stops.

Whether you’re a group of friends looking to get fit by training for an alternative night out, or an individual looking to see a different side to London, this is the charity event for you! Register your interest for The Big London Night Walk 2017 and we’ll let you know as soon as registration is live later on this year.

If you don’t want to do the walk itself, but still want to support the event then perhaps consider volunteering to help us keep things running smoothly on the night.

All the money raised from The Big Night Walk 2017 will support the vital work of The Big Issue Foundation so we can help more Big Issue vendors in their difficult journeys away from homelessness. In the knowledge of this, you’ll be motivated to take every step until you reach the finish in the early hours on the Saturday morning.
