Framework's Big Sleep Out 2021

Sleep out so others don't have to

Sleeping under cardboard

Framework’s Big Sleep Out is an opportunity to spend a unique night sleeping outside whilst raising vital funds to help people who are experiencing homelessness. You’ll be without some of your usual comforts, but you’ll have fun and enjoy some great entertainment whilst preparing for the night ahead.

What to bring if you are sleeping under cardboard

Please bring warm waterproof clothes and bedding. A woolly hat, warm dry footwear and gloves are essential. Several thin layers of clothing are better than one thick layer. It’s better to bring too many layers and take some off than to not have enough. You can also bring waterproof survival or bivvy bags, as sold in outdoor equipment shops.

Cardboard will be available on site for you to construct your own shelter, but do feel free to bring your own cardboard or even a ready-made flat-pack shelter.

  • Sleeping bag/bivvy bag
