The Big SleepOut 2023

March 31 @ 12:00 pm

Sleep out and help raise money to support homeless young people in Blackpool

£10 registration fee and you will receive:

  • Entry Wristband
  • Commemorative Streetlife Gift

Registrations are now open!

The event will run from 8pm to 6am (or as long as you can last!). It will be held outside St John’s Church, St John’s Square, in Blackpool town centre.

Streetlife is a youth work charity whose aim is to assist vulnerable young people in the Blackpool area. Our last event in 2022 saw 150 people from across Lancashire turn out to this amazing cause.

Due to the enormous generosity of families, individuals and businesses, Streetlife raised an amazing £18,500 from the 2022 Big Sleepout, £15,000 in 2021 and an incredible £43,000 in 2019! This money has been used to provide emergency safe accommodation to homeless young people in our Night Shelter at St. Johns Walk in Blackpool town centre.

There is a £10 registration fee which includes a wristband, commemorative Streetlife gift and survival sack.

We ask all participants to commit to raising £50 in sponsorship. You can create your own online donations form through Just Giving by clicking on this link: and click on the “fundraise for us” tab in the top right hand corner. If you require a paper sponsorship form please email:
