The Big Snore is one of the most important fundraising events for Framework. We’re teaming up with West Notts College to bring you this fun, thought-provoking and worthwhile community event.
Homelessness is increasing. Framework needs your help to tackle homelessness in Mansfield. Since 2004, when St Mark’s Church began the Big Snore, hundreds of people have taken part to demonstrate their concern and raise valuable funds which all go to tackle homelessness locally.
This is a unique opportunity to reflect on what it is like to be without a home, and every penny of the money you raise will go towards supporting homeless and vulnerable people in Mansfield.
This year the Big Snore takes place at West Nottinghamshire College and, with enthusiastic help from students and staff, will be particularly exciting. Our Woodland Animals theme is a chance to show off your most exotic onesie; there will be great entertainment as you prepare for the night ahead; and the ‘Box Factor’ competition is a chance to win great prizes for the most imaginative shelter.
If you just can't wait, this link will take you straight to our Eventbrite page where you can reserve your place now.
Find out what it's all about. Watch our video below.
With great support from West Notts College we have some fantastic entertainment lined up for the early part of the evening and some incredible cardboard shelters that the students have made.

There will be toilet facilities and hot drinks available all night, participants should prepare for the cold. Be sure to bring your sleeping bag and plenty of warm clothes.
Cardboard is also essential for keeping out that North Notts wind.

You can secure your place with a non-refundable £10 fee for adults; for people aged 5-16 years and for West Nottinghamshire College students the fee is £5. People under 16 may only take part if accompanied by an adult and a responsible adult must complete the registration of minors using the form online.
