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 under shelter at the Kia Oval Cricket Ground.
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 the 2017 event.
This will be our sixth Big London Sleep Out. Although it is not intended to be 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.
