The Nelson Trust Annual Clay Shoot & Black Tie Dinner is established as one of the key events in many people’s social diaries. The Deer Park with the stunning Folly as a backdrop is a picturesque venue for the day and dinner in the historic Great Hall at Berkeley Castle is a very special and exclusive experience. We are grateful for the generosity of our host Mr Charles Berkeley and family.

Last year our supporters raised over £45,000 for The Nelson Trust at the Clay Shoot and Black Tie Dinner. As a charity, we are reliant on your generosity and support. By booking your tickets today you and your friends will enable us to transform the lives of those in rehabilitation from addiction and within our women’s services where we assist vulnerable women in the community.

The Clay Shoot is certainly a day to remember, with five clay shooting stands plus the famous Gnat stand. There will be a delicious BBQ of venison burgers and refreshments at the end of the shoot.

What makes this day so special is the Black Tie Dinner, served in the Great Hall of Berkeley Castle. Sit where 'The Other Boleyn Girl' and 'Wolf Hall' was filmed and enjoy an exquisite evening. There will be pre-dinner drinks with private tours of the Castle, a truly memorable experience. The evening will include Heads & Tails and our annual big ticket auction. The dinner has limited numbers so please book early to avoid disappointment.
