Action for Children's inaugural Starry Night gala will be held on Thursday 30 November at Battersea Arts Centre.

The gala aims to raise money to help give more children across the UK the safe and happy childhood they deserve.

What to expect on the night

Starry Night promises to be an extraordinary experience as we immerse guests into a night of theatre and heart warming moments, whilst raising funds to help give more children the safe and happy childhood they deserve. Guests will enjoy a champagne reception and three-course meal, designed for this evening alone, by the UK’s top luxury caterer, Jimmy Garcia, with unique entertainment throughout.

We'll be joined by Charlotte Church, who will headline the evening with two exclusive performances. This includes a duet alongside Action for Children’s Young Carers choir: Young Carers' Aloud, made up of 12 young people that our services support - the youngest carer being just 6 years old.

With support from our celebrity ambassadors, and more special moments on the night, this is an evening not to be missed.

Watch Charlotte on This Morning, Thursday 30th November from 10am on ITV1 and ITVX as she shares more about her journey with Young Carers Aloud.

The venue

Battersea Arts Centre is a stunning Grade II listed building, which was built in a similar time and has opened its doors to young families and children in need of support ever since.

​With youth mentor programmes, community support events and emerging young talent concerts still taking place in our current day, the venue is an incredibly impactful support network for the local community and beyond. ​

What better way to launch the inaugural Starry Night gala than in a venue which so beautifully shines a light on the ethos of the charity, as well as a nod to its founding era.
