What is it?
Feeling brave? Then why not head to The Y theatre in Leicester on Friday 13th May for their Spooky Sleep In fundraiser?
The Y is Leicester’s oldest surviving theatre and guests for the evening will be able to participate in a tour of the deepest, darkest recesses of the venue. The Y building is over 100 years old and wasn’t always used as a theatre. As tales of a bygone era echo around the theatre, visitors can submerge themselves in what once was. Afterwards a slew of on-screen horror will add to the evening’s atmosphere as visitors try to get to sleep in the dark, open, theatre space.
The brave participants should bring something comfortable to wear, a sleeping bag and a torch, ready for this evening of tours and tales at the theatre. Each person who takes on the challenge of sleeping in the theatre is helping to raise money for The Y to continue to provide support and education for homeless young people in Leicester and Leicestershire.
The Spooky Sleep In is suitable for those over 14 years of age.
