We're really proud to be supporting this event by singing early on the morning of Sunday 8th December to the people who have slept rough for a night in solidarity with rough sleepers who have to do that every night.

Sleepers are sponsored, and various homeless charities are beneficiaries (St Martin in the Fields is a major sponsoring charity). Last year there were four Sleep Outs, in the four biggest Scottish cities. This year, the charismatic founder of the movement, Josh Littlejohn MBE, has taken it global, and there will be Sleep Outs in many of the world’s major cities…including London, where 2000 are expected to sleep out in Trafalgar Square.

On the evening of Saturday 7th December, they will be entertained by various music acts including Travis, Tom Walker and Gang of Youths and read a bedtime story by Dame Helen Mirren.

They will be woken the following morning by only one act…Soul Sanctuary!
