Sleep Out Success!
Last year, thanks to all the brilliant participants who braved the rain in a sleeping bag, our event was a real accomplishment and raised over £17,000 in valuable funds!
A massive thank you to everyone who took part and we hope you'll join us again this year!
On the night:
We had a brilliant line-up to keep everyone entertained, with music from:
- Kirk Morgan - Incredible local talent with an acoustic guitar! Honestly, he should be gracing the stages of Greenman Festival, so it was an honour to have him play for us.
- Einir Dafydd - Big on the Welsh music scene & multi-talented with soulful piano tunes, an acoustic guitar and a beautiful voice.
- The Bleedin Noses - A raucous mix of dirty country, blues, folk, jazz & punk. The Blackwood natives certainly shook things up at Sleep Out!
Bringing in the funny, the hilarious Mike Bubbins, Leroy Brito & Chris Chopping came to join us, as well as beat-boxing from Dean at Urban Circle, face painting, retro games from Cardiff Geek Party and a mechanical bull!
And of course not forgetting the food…
- Las Iguanos - provided a much needed hot & spicy chilli for all involved!
- Dominos - A midnight pizza feast? Who could resist?
- Bake Me Happy - the lovely ladies satisfied the sweet-tooth with their homemade cupcakes
- Flooks - our Llamau social enterprise cafe served up the 6am breakfast rolls, with food kindly provided by Castell Howell
- Wine Store No.4 & Untapped Brewery - on hand with a stiff drink!
Phew! What an amazing night it was and our Sleep Out-ers certainly agreed…
