Helping vulnerable children shine bright

Every year, we bring you something a little different – and always special. With a sparkling atmosphere, star-studded guests, and stand-out entertainment, we create a magical evening showcasing the life-changing work we do and the incredible children and young people we support.

This year, we’re rewinding to the rule-breaking, roaring twenties as we come together in the grade II listed, art deco Ballroom on Piccadilly, surrounded by the architecture of another chapter of Action for Children’s 155-year history.

What to expect

From the moment you arrive on the red carpet, you’ll experience an unforgettable evening filled with exclusive entertainment and heart-warming moments, sprinkled with 1920s nostalgia.

Sip from classic coupes in our Champagne and canapé reception, dine on an exquisite three-course meal, and dance the night away.

See the magic for yourself: our first ever Starry Night

Last November, we launched Starry Night at the stunning Grade II listed Battersea Arts Centre.

The event raised an incredible £150,000 for Action for Children.

The evening was a celebration of Action for Children’s life-changing work and how far we’ve come since our beginnings. Our history was brought centre stage, as we told the story of the charity’s creation over 150 years ago, by The Reverend Dr Bowman Stephenson.

Guests were transported back to Victorian England with an Oliver Twist medley performance by the award-winning troupe, West End Kids, immersive actors and a deliciously theatrical three-course meal by the UK’s top luxury caterer, Jimmy Garcia.
