Celtic Sleep Out London, 2023

Celtic Sleep Out London returns to St Anne’s Primary in Whitechapel

December 2, 2023

This year’s Celtic Sleep Out, London will once again take place at St Anne’s Primary in Whitechapel on Saturday, December 2, 2023 and will once again be an integral element of our annual Christmas Appeal.

We return to St Anne’s, which holds huge historical and emotional significance for the Celtic Family.

In 1892, five years after his leading role in the formation of Celtic Football Club, the Marist Order moved Brother Walfrid from Glasgow to the Whitechapel area of London’s East End.

Over the next 15 years, as Head Teacher at St Anne’s Primary, Brother Walfrid transformed the school and also established a project to provide meals to the poor in the local community.

Participants will spend the night – from 9.00pm to 5.00am – battling the elements outdoors, all for a wonderful cause.

Places are limited and will be allocated on a first come, first served basis. The non-refundable registration fee is £30 per person. Please ensure you read the Terms and Conditions thoroughly before committing to your agreement and signing up*

The key details are:
