Sleep Out - 1625 Independent People Sleep Out is our highlight of the year, to get together a celebrate the work that the charity does, and the support we receive from our fantastic community.
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.
What’s on?
• Jazz performance of ‘Comfort in Chaos’ – a piece written specifically for 1625ip, featuring young people’s spoken word and poetry
• Folk music with Longest Johns
• Circus performers
• A silent disco!
• A crepe and coffee stand
• Local Bristol food vendors
• Speeches from our CEO and young people
