The Big Sleep - Bovington Tank Museum

28 Jan 2022 - 29 Jan 2022

For all those big kids among us who enjoy playing with our toy tanks, here is your opportunity to sleep next to a real one!  Join us at The Tank Museum in Bovington, Dorset for our Big Sleep at this fascinating venue and learn more about tanks from around the world.

All the funds raised from our Big Sleep at The Tank Museum will go to support vulnerable Armed Forces Veterans who have suffered the despair of homelessness.

Sign up registration costs £5 a child and £10 an adult and is available to those aged 11 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. 

The Big Sleep will start at 8 pm on Friday 28th January and ends at 6 am on Saturday 29th January.

Participants who are joining us for the Big Sleep pledge to raise a minimum of £100 for Alabaré (£50 for anyone aged 11-18).


976 homeless people died across the four nations last year. By taking part in The Big Sleep and fundraising for Alabaré Homes for Veterans, you will be making a difference to the lives of homeless veterans living in Hampshire, Wiltshire, Devon, Gloucestershire and across Wales.

Alabaré's Homes, Drop-In Centres and training facilities support homeless and vulnerable people. Alabaré helps them transform their lives, providing accommodation and helping them gain the skills, confidence and opportunities to live a fulfilled life. Each year we enable around 1,500 people to come off the streets but our work is challenging and the challenge is getting bigger, with the number of rough sleepers increasing.

Let's end homelessness!
