Welsh charity Llamau has launched a sleepover event aimed at 8-18 year olds.
Sleep Over is for young people and children aged 8 to 18 years old and challenges them to spend the night outside to raise funds to help homeless people.
Participants can choose to spend the night sleeping in the concourse of the Principality Stadium, or sleep outside on Riverside Walk.
Those who choose to sleep outside will be in a fenced off area stewarded by Llamau staff all night to make sure everyone remains safe and secure, and all children and young people under the age of 18 years old must be accompanied by a responsible adult.
The event will include activities to raise awareness of homelessness as well as games and activities until bedtime.
