What to expect

In the run up to the night, you'll receive a fundraising pack and some helpful resources from us to support with your fundraising efforts!

You’ll also receive a kit list, with everything you’ll need to bring with you on the night.

We’re asking each person taking part to raise a minimum of £350, and we will support you along the way.

You’ll arrive at Kachette at 8pm on 23 February with your sleeping bags and layers to prepare you for the cold. Though Kachette is an indoor space, the doors will remain open overnight so make sure to wrap up!

The night will consist of activities and several opportunities to learn more about youth homelessness and the vital work Centrepoint is doing in our mission to end it by 2037.


On the night there will be several activities, talks and speeches to keep you occupied and give you the chance to learn more about youth homelessness and Centrepoint’s work.

Once you've arrived and set up your sleeping area, you'll have the chance to listen to some of our frontline staff, as well as take part in other interactive activities.

Lights out will be at around 11pm, and that's when the real challenge begins. You'll settle down to spend a night under the railway arches.

There will be hot drinks on hand throughout the night and soft refreshments. A light breakfast will also be available in the morning. We'd recommend eating a hearty dinner before arriving though as that won't be provided. 

Our London Sleep Out is an 18+ event.

This year we'll be sleeping at Kachette, home of the original Shoreditch Railway ticket hall.

Though not directly outside, it will be exposed to the elements, and so we expect it to be cold!

We recommend bringing a sleeping bag, hats, jumpers, or any layers that will mean you stay warm throughout the night. 

Arrival at the venue will be from 8pm. Please make sure to bring everything you need with you as there will be no re-entry.

Speeches and activities will start from 9pm and lights out will be at 11pm.

In the morning, people tend to leave between 5-8am, when public transport begins again.

Kachette is located under the railways arches on Old Street. It is located just a short walk from Old Street Underground Station, Shoreditch High Street Overground Station and Hoxton Overground Station.
