Night of Ambition

Recap of the 2019 gala

In 2019, Night of Ambition saw more than 500 guests attend and raise £440,000 for Ambitious about Autism while set against the backdrop of the spectacular Natural History Museum.

The evening was hosted by the hilarious and entertaining Ruby Wax, and guests watched artist David Downes create his fabulous masterpiece live throughout the evening. Towards the end of the evening guests heard from our inspiring Autism Exchange Intern Amy Walker, and pledged an amazing £41,000 to Ambitious about Autism’s Employ Autism programme - leading the way to address the challenges young people with autism encounter in their transition from education to employment.  

To date, the partnership between Ambitious about Autism and TalkTalk has raised nearly £5 million helping to improve the lives of children and young people with autism across the UK.


Night of Ambition 2020

It is with heavy hearts that we have made the decision to not hold a Night of Ambition in 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic.  

However, we are currently in planning for something exciting for late spring, early summer 2021, so stay tuned!
