“Incredible, inspiring, thought-provoking and a definite would do it again event" - Big Night Walk 2017 Participant

Starting off in central London at Shoreditch Town Hall, the unique 13.23 mile route will take you on a tour of the iconic sites at night. It will be an eye-opening experience and you’ll hear personal insights from Big Issue vendors before you start.

Hot drinks and snacks will be provided and the finish venue will remain open for participants until transport re-starts, as your finish time is likely to be between 1am and 4am, depending on your speed and time at rest stops.

All the money raised from The Big Night Walk 2018 will support the vital work of The Big Issue Foundation so we can help more Big Issue vendors in their difficult journeys away from the poverty of their situations. This may be helping a vendor to find a safe place to live, reconnecting with family and loved ones, improving their personal health and well-being or training and development that will lead to a new career.
