The Big Sleep Out was a huge success in November 2016, raising over £25,000. 2017’s event will present even more of a challenge as participants will be sleeping outside in the stalls area of the Kia Oval Cricket Ground.

You can read about the 2016 event here, view the photo gallery from the latest event here and the video below.

The last Big Sleep Out featured entertainment from Citi Choir, as well as a special film under the theme of ‘home’ by Chocolate Films. The highlight was an interactive panel discussion with former and current Big Issue vendors which will return for this year’s event.

This will be our sixth Big London Sleep Out and will challenge you to abandon your comfort zone and negotiate a night’s sleep in a safe, but cold and uncomfortable environment. By taking on the challenge you will be raising money for The Big Issue Foundation and helping vendors connect with vital housing, financial and healthcare services.

We’d love you to join us for this alternative Friday night to learn more about our important work.
