Charity Clay Day // The Nelson Trust

The Nelson Trust Charity Clay Shoot and Dinner

Friday 10th May 2019 // Berkeley Castle, Gloucestershire

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.


- Tickets for the shoot are £150 per person
(Shoot tickets can be purchased individually or as a team of four, if tickets are purchased individually you will be introduced to other guests on the day and put into a team)
- Tickets for the dinner are £75 per person 
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. Our Hub Bistro Café based in Gloucester will be providing a delicious BBQ of venison burgers and providing refreshments at the end of the shoot. The Hub:Bistro is a social enterprise solely run by those in recovery. This is a great chance for you to see how our work makes a real difference.

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.
