Welcome to Spectrum events, our central point for all place requests at our events, sessions and fundraisers.
Here are the details for all our upcoming Spectrum events, sessions and fundraisers. You will need your Spectrum membership number to book on to any members-only event, this starts with the letters SC and is NOT your Max Card number.
The Spectrum team has years of experience designing, creating and organising events for families of children with Autism, additional needs and disabilities. All our activities are inclusion and family-focused, especially taking care of as many of the smaller details that often cause hurdles for so many that we support.
Spectrum Monthly Dedicated Family Sessions
The families we support can access three free family sessions per month at Clip n Climb Cambridge and Climb Quest Milton Keynes and with us at Spectrum Play. These dedicated sessions come alongside a host of other events and away days at various venues, such as Legoland, Warwick Castle, Disneyland Paris and the Harry Potter Studios. Furthermore, the Spectrum events are varied to cover the different child age ranges, needs, interests and abilities that we support.
Accessibility & Options
We offer many entertainment options, the Arts, heritage, interaction, technology and sport, to name but a few. Spectrum has delivered hundreds of events at a wide variety of venues, both locally and at many points across the UK. We also provide a coach for ease of travel and group attendance for many of our away days. Furthermore, we offer some adult-only respite events during the year, like our Black Tie Ball 2024 and dining experiences with the Hilton Cambridge. Please note that pricing for all our events is supplied, especially by the venues we work with for us; it is not possible, in addition to this pricing, to use such things as discount codes and vouchers.
How to request places at Spectrum events
1. Click on the event of interest to you, immediately below in our OPEN section.
2. The event will open up a new page with all the information about the event.
3. Simply complete the request form at the foot of the event page you opened.
4. You will receive an email copy of your submission to us.
5. We will follow up with you in due course once places are allocated.
Where relevant, we provide a current status with each event.
If an event interests you but has a waiting list, it is still worth submitting a place request. Due to the nature of the children and families that we support, circumstances can subsequently change, and places can come available.
SPECTRUM EVENTS OPEN FOR PLACE REQUESTS

- Each event is marked with its present booking status, which is replicated above its booking form
