Could you ‘sleep rough’ for a night?

The Big Sleepout 2020 ‘from home’ has been a huge success and the feedback we’ve got about the live stream broadcast has been fantastic. We want to give a MASSIVE St Basils THANK YOU to everyone who took part and everyone who helped make the event happen.

Check out our first live stream broadcast and although we say so ourselves, it is brilliant. Enjoy!

We are also going to run the Big Sleepout from home at the same time, so if you can’t make it to the actual Big Sleepout in the grounds of Birmingham cathedral, you can sleepout in your back garden, office work space, community hall or at home sofa surfing, and again we will has the Live Stream Big Sleepout Broadcast for EVERYONE to experience, where ever they are.

and we will send you your own Big Sleepout Pack.

We believe that the live stream broadcast we did on Friday 27th November 2020 was the first of it’s kind by any charity and it would not have been possible with out the support of Andy Street, Sharon Thompson, David Urquhart and everyone at the Birmingham Cathedral, Sam Groves and Ian Francis and all at Flatpack, John Fell and all at the Moseley Folk Festival, Michael and all the band of Boat to Row, Colin Hutchinson and all at ThinkTank Birmingham, Drew Colby and all at Fingers & Thumbs Theatre Company, Sean Connolly, Steve and all the members of the West Midlands Fire Service Brass Band, Carriss Auburn and Bear Grylls.
