Clay Shoot & Black Tie Dinner

Friday 12th May – Berkeley Castle

Shoot £150 per person, Dinner £75 per person


The Nelson Trust Annual Clay Shoot & Black Tie Dinner is now 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 also to Mr & Mrs Harry Marshall. 
Last year our supporters raised over £30,000 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 tickets, you and your friends will enable us to transform the lives of those in rehabilitation from addiction or within our Women’s services where we assist vulnerable women in the community.

With five clay shooting stands plus the famous Gnat stand, we also have some fun new additions to make it a day to remember. 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, including prizes such as a day racing in an exclusive box at Cheltenham Racecourse and the use of a Bentley for a weekend. The dinner has limited numbers so please book early to avoid disappointment.
