FRIDAY OCTOBER 22nd 

CLICK HERE TO REGISTER

Alabaré invites you to take a stand against homelessness, by bedding down for one night at the world-famous landmark, the Tower of London, in a single act of compassion to help save lives.

The event promises to be a bone-chilling, powerful and yet humbling experience. You will sleep rough, in the cold, on the hard-cobbled walkway in front of the Traitor’s Gate, between the Thames and the Tower, with a view of Tower Bridge and HMS Belfast (not for the faint-hearted!). This experience will give you a taste of what it is like to bed down like a homeless person but just for one night, knowing that you can return to your warm home and comfortable bed.

During the night, you will hear how your sponsorship money will positively impact the homeless and vulnerable. Alabaré will specifically support homeless Veterans off the street, provide supported accommodation and create the skills, confidence, and opportunity to live fulfilling lives.

"It's 7:55, quick time check and then into the sleeping bag. Ignore the rock under your hip. Temperature is dropping so try and get into a ball. 1 am and traffic noise is finally stopping. Owls hooting. Getting colder. 4 am owls stop and birds take over. 5 am and the traffic starts again. 7 am time for tea and breakfast. For me one night only - for too many it's just one more night."

– Steve, Big Sleep Participant

 

By taking part you pledge to raise a minimum of £200. Alabaré will be making a financial donation from the profit of this event to support a homeless charity working in the borough of Tower Hamlets.

You will have the opportunity to meet with the legendary Yeoman Warders, or Beefeaters as they can be known, who will educate you on the impressive history of the Tower of London. A limited number of people will have the opportunity to witness the historic Ceremony of the Keys (more details to follow!), and you will all hear a bedtime story Dan is writing before you bed down and try to get a night’s rest.

Together, let's end homelessness.

A truly iconic place to rest your head!

This is your chance to sleep out at this iconic London venue and wake up to the sights of Tower Bridge and the City.  Never before have members of the public been allowed to stay overnight in the castle grounds so this is truly a unique opportunity, in a single act of compassion to help save lives. 

The event promises to be a bone-chilling, powerful and yet humbling experience. You will sleep rough, in front of the Traitor’s Gate, with a view of Tower Bridge and HMS Belfast (not for the faint-hearted!) providing you with a taste of what it is like to bed down like a homeless person; albeit just for one night, knowing that in the morning you can return to your warm home and comfortable bed.

Sign up registration costs £10 per ticket and is available to those aged 14 years and over (under 18's need to be accompanied by an adult). Full information and frequently based questions are available on our Eventbrite page.
