The Big Sleepout 2022

  • Start Date: 25th Nov, 2022 @ 6:00pm
  • Closing Date: 25th Nov, 2022 @ 6:00am
  • Location: Millennium Point, Birmingham

Challenge yourself to sleepout outside for a night and help raise money so that vulnerable young people don’t have to do it for real.

The St Basils Big Sleepout is the oldest, longest running event of its kind in the world. It’s one of our most popular annual events that has been described as ‘eye-opening’ by many. The challenge is to sleep out on a cold, winter’s night to get a slight glimpse of what it could feel like to be homeless.


Big Sleepout 2022 – Friday 25th November – Millennium Point 

We are NOT charging for this event. It is FREE! But we do ask you to raise as much as you can by sponsorship for us. Every £5 you raise houses one of our vulnerable young people for a night.

As with every year, we will be running the much loved Creative Cardboard Competition for the best dwelling with a prize for the winner and there will be free vegan curry and hot drinks served by the brilliant Langar Aid on the night!

You MUST read the  Terms & Conditions for this event before registering.

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 at Millennium Point, you can sleepout in your back garden, office work space, community hall or ‘sofa surfing’ at home. To let us know you are taking part from home, please email and we will send you your own Big Sleepout Pack.

Check out our first ever live stream broadcast here, it’s brilliant (even if we do say so ourselves!)
