Song Requests & Shout Outs…

Many of you might not have met our Events Coordinator Toni yet. As well as working for St Basils, Toni is a musical marvel and has agreed to do some DJing as part of the Big Sleepout. For those taking part in the Sleepout At Home, Toni will be creating a playlist, which we’ll upload to Spotify and share the link on this newsletter in a few weeks.

That being said, we would like your help! Please recommend songs you’d like to hear on the night!

Fill out the out the form below, with your song choices and don’t forget to share a message for our DJ to read out on the night.



Get inspired for the Creative Cardboard Competition!

Not content with making you sleep outside; we also like to challenge you to create the best temporary shelter too. You’ll be given a cardboard box on the night, but feel free to bring things with you to make it a real spectacle. Remember, it’s a cardboard competition so any additions should be paper or card (the odd string of fairy lights are fine, but please take them home with you). You’ll find some examples of previous cardboard creations, below.
