Archer Project Sleep Out relaunches to include music festival supporting image

Music for the Homeless launches on Saturday 8 June

After 12 years of city centre sleep outs the Cathedral Archer Project (CAP) this year is hosting their sleep out as part of a music festival on Saturday 8th June, at Don Valley Bowl in conjunction with MosFest.


Music for the Homeless will be a collection of amazing music, great entertainment and fun activities. But most importantly it is a chance for you to challenge yourself and gain a small insight into what it is like for people sleeping out, for whom sadly, sleeping outdoors is not a one-off experience.


After rocking out to bands from across the UK you’ll find your patch of ground and sleep out under the stars. To sleep out after the music all you have to do is raise a minimum of £50 per person. Though if you want a little bit of luxury you can pay £25 to reserve a tent pitch and bring your own tent.


Lynne Urpeth, (CAP) Corporate and Event Co-ordinator added, “We are really excited to be working with Mosfest on what is going to be the Charity event of the year. Mosfest is now widely regarded as Sheffield’s biggest and best organised charity-based festival organisers.”


With great bands and a night you’ll never forget, what are you waiting for?

Steve Cowen, organiser of Mosfest, added, ‘A charity has always benefited from our yearly music event so we think it’s a great idea to have this year’s charity as the Cathedral Archer Project.  We have lined up a great music event and added the option of a sleep out experience.   It’s a chance to step out of our normal comfort zone and experience something new whist raising money for those less fortunate than ourselves.  We hope that people support this event so we can make it a growing annual event in the Sheffield calendar."
