The Stade this September, raising awareness and funds for some of the town’s most vulnerable people. Building on the success of last year’s Big Sleep (which raised over £25,000) registration is now open for those wishing to join in. The Big Sleep will
run from 8.00pm on Friday 28th to 7.00am next morning and features musical entertainment from Hastings favourites Bobby Fuego’s Fat Fingers of Funk Band, The Haystingers and King Size Slim. Hosted by TV and Radio presenter Kevin Devine, the entertainment is free and open to all between 8pm and 10pm.

The sleep out is a ticketed event (for those who have registered by midday 27th September and reached the £25 target) which commences at 10pm in our cardboard city on the Stade. Exclusively for those sleeping out, there will be an unplugged gig around the brazier with King Size Slim.

Hot drinks will be available throughout the night with porridge served the following morning.

Head to and sign up as an individual or a team.
