Spectrum Black Tie Ball 2022

May 14th 2022 – Hilton Hotel Cambridge City Centre

We hope that you can join us for a wonderful evening at the 3rd Spectrum Black Tie Ball, on the evening of Saturday, May 14th 2022 at the Hilton Hotel Cambridge City Centre, our exceptional partners. The event runs from 7pm to 12am, is adult only attendance with a regency feel, and we are delighted that the exceptional Vicky Jackson returns to headline our event, this time with her band.

The evening is a special fundraising event for Spectrum, a parent-led charity supporting children with Autism, additional needs and disabilities alongside their families and carers. The proceeds from the evening go to support the events that we provide and the work that we do on inclusion. We are sure you will have a fantastic evening with us.

Drinks await you on arrival from Pinkster Gin, as our evening centres around a wonderful 3-course menu, the incredible skills of silhouettist Charles Burns and elite magician Lee Smith are also to hand! Our DJ Jordan will also be in attendance to keep you on your feet and make for a memorable night.
