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.

We are almost ready to open registrations and you will be able to sign up in early April to secure your spot on this night like no other.
