Event Details

The Big London Sleep Out is back- and bigger than ever!

This year, we’re excited to offer two different Sleep Outs in London- The Big London Sleep Out North and The Big London Sleep Out South. This page is for tickets for our Big London Sleep Out North at the Bernie Grant Arts Centre. For more information about The Big London Sleep Out South, please click here.

After last year’s sold out Big Sleep Out at the Kia Oval, we’re back with one extra Big Sleep Out! As well as The Big London Sleep Out South, returning to the Kia Oval, we’re excited to announce that we’ll be taking over the Bernie Grant Arts Centre in Tottenham to host The Big London Sleep Out North! Join us for a night out under the stars and have a taste of what it’s like to live without a home. With no protection from the elements, last year’s Sleep Out saw our fundraisers sleeping out in nearly freezing temperatures. Are you ready for the challenge?

Last year’s Sleep Out raised over £50,000 for our vital work with Big Issue vendors and we can’t wait to see our fundraising target smashed again this year! You will have a fundraising target of £350 which will go towards enabling more vendors like Matthew and Nicolas have the opportunity to take positive steps forward, away from a life of poverty and exclusion. The Big Issue Foundation fundraising team will be there to offer any advice or support to make sure that you can smash your target.

Past participants have said:

"It was such an amazing fundraiser. I now feel as though all misconceptions have been cleared up and I have a far better understanding of how exactly the charity helps its vendors, and I have so much respect for them. To be able to pick yourself up and be so determined to better their situations in any way they can is very courageous and inspiring!" Joan, Former Big Sleep Out Participant

Big Issue Foundation CEO Stephen Robertson took part in last year’s event and told us:

“Whilst sleeping out for the participants is hopefully just once this year, on average over 4100 people slept outside on any one night in the UK last year. Events like this enable us to ensure that our services team can tackle the complexities of rough sleeping, exclusion and the many other complex issues that challenge Big Issue vendors on a daily basis.”

This event will sell out in advance, so please do register as soon as possible to avoid disappointment. Register now for £25, or just £20 per individual for a team of 5 or more. This charity event provides an interesting and thought provoking insight into the lives of people who are homeless and is a night not to be missed.

It's going to be cold as you'll be sleeping outside in the stall area on the concrete floor. We suggest you bring lots of layers, a sleeping bag, and cardboard to lie on! We welcome both teams and individuals registering as a great place to meet likeminded people, share an unusual experience and do something to support people living difficult lives across the capital and beyond.




Are there any age requirements to enter the event?

The minimum age to enter the event is 14. If you are aged 14 to 17 you will have to be accompanied by an adult. There is no upper age limit but it is your responsibility to ensure that you are healthy enough for sleeping out overnight. If in doubt, please take advice from your medical practitioner.


What are my transport/parking options for getting to and from the event?

The venue is about 5 minutes walk from Oval Station on the Northern Line and 10 minutes walk from Vauxhall Station where you can access the Victoria Line, Vauxhall Bus Station and National Rail trains.Your answer goes here. For the first time, we are able to offer some parking for the event, please do let us know if you require a parking space.


What shall I bring into the event?

We strongly advise you not to bring valuables to the event. It's going to be cold as you will be sleeping in the stall area, although undercover it is in the open air. We suggest bringing lots of layers and a sleeping bag. We also suggest bringing a sheet of cardboard to have on the floor or roll matt. We recommend that you bring extra warm clothes including a couple of pairs of socks, hat and gloves.

You don't need to bring any money with you for the event, but there will be a chance to buy a Big Issue Foundation beanie hat or t-shirt for £10 and there will of course be opportunities to donate more to support our work if you would like to.
