The Big Sleep Out is now full for 2016, but you can put yourself on the waiting list for 2016 here. Please register your interest for next year here and you will be the first to hear when we have launched our next sleep out event. If you can't wait until then, you can sign up for our Big London Night Walk now for March 2017 here.
The Big Sleep Out is an eye-opening evening of education and inspiration, taking place on Friday 25th November at St John’s Church, Waterloo, home to one of The Big Issue’s distribution points.
This will be our fifth Big London Sleep Out and although it is not intended to be a a full ‘homeless experience’ it will challenge you to abandon your comfort zone and negotiate a night’s sleep in a safe but cold and uncomfortable environment. By taking part, you will be showing support and raising awareness and much needed funds to support Big Issue vendors on their journeys to a better life.
The evening will feature live music and spoken word poetry.
You will also have the opportunity to hear personal insights from vendors who have experienced homelessness in a panel discussion and in conversation, before we bed down for the night. It will be a chance to learn more about what we do at The Big Issue Foundation.
