“Humanity owes the child the best it has to give.”

- Eglantyne Jebb; Founder, Save the Children

Our Centenary Gala, hosted by David Walliams, was a remarkable celebration and fundraiser. Through unique and dramatic theatrical and musical collaborations, the evening showcased the very best from the international entertainment industry.

In the striking setting of the Roundhouse, guests enjoyed a spectacular Gala Dinner and after-dinner performances from globally-renowned musicians. It was a profound moment to recognise the work that has been achieved and reaffirm our commitment to the world’s children. Our incredible Gala Committee ensured that a truly unforgettable evening is staged.

Raising Funds and Awareness

Save the Children's Special Events team strive to create a wide range of innovative, dynamic and social events to raise as much money as possible to save children's lives around the world. 

As well as generating vital funds, these events help raise awareness of the work we do and provide our supporters with exciting opportunities to meet like-minded people.

Our annual Winter Gala offers guests the chance to step into a magical children's story for the night, while our 'Night of...' series celebrates some of the world's favourite music and musicians. These events have been attended by high-profile figures including Luke Evans and Helena Bonham Carter.

We're also fortunate to benefit from high profile events run by our corporate partners, such as the IFR Awards. Our committee-led International Arbitration Charity Ball is also a highlight of the legal calendar.

Upcoming Events

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, some of our events have been postponed. Please get in touch with our Special Events team at specialevents@savethechildren.org.uk for further information.
