Some sleepers seem to be enjoying themselves too much

Byte Night’s founder Ken Deeks had some unusual hopes for this year’s event. “I know it sounds odd, but we do tend to hope for rain and cold during Byte Night,” he said. “It’s not pleasant, but experiencing harsh conditions on the night is a great leveller. It really makes us appreciate what these vulnerable young people will have to face as we approach winter.”


Byte Night is the IT industry's annual fundraising event, generating money for charity Action for Children by asking IT professionals across the UK to spend one night sleeping rough. It's never too late to donate - visit for all the details.
