We enjoy delicious food from vendors over Bristol, drinks, live performances, and speeches before we settle down for a cold winter’s night. It’s a fundraising event, as sleeping outside for the night is certainly a challenge! We cannot replicate what it feels like to sleep rough, but we sleep outside for a night as a symbol, standing up for those who do not have a choice. You can bring along a sleeping bag, a camping mat, and pillows – it’s ok to try to be comfortable! We’ve got a marquee which provides cover if it’s raining, but allows ventilation too.
