The Australian AIP says such charts are valid for three hours either side of the stated validity time. So assuming that the same convention applies the world over, in the example you gave the chart would be valid for the period 2100 to 0300.

The UK AIP GEN section should have the answer in as much as if the UK met office follows international convention in preparing these charts or diverges for some reason.

Captain Claret had the correct information and then gave the wrong actual times for the chart in question. If the chart issue time is midnight then the validity period is 2100 to 0300. It is 3 hours either side of the issue time.
This is mentioned in the various countries AIP MET section. I have checked out quite a few round the world and they all seem to have the same thing on this.
