Lord and Lady Carnarvon will be opening the Castle for a special one-day event this December to raise funds for the Oxfam’s Syria Crisis appeal.
Lady Carnarvon says ‘The purpose is to make our voices heard about the plight of millions of refugees whose lives have been uprooted and destroyed as a result of the devastating war in Syria. As winter approaches, we hope to raise funds to provide food, shelter, medicine, and clothing for displaced and injured people spending the coldest months of the year in refugee camps in Jordan and Lebanon'.
December 7th at Highclere Castle will be a full day of musical entertainment taking place both inside the Castle and on an outdoor stage. Representatives from Oxfam will be here throughout the day sharing information about how you can contribute to the Syria Crisis Appeal and explain how your donation will truly help those in need. Special guest entertainers will be singing throughout the day.
Highclere Castle’s Tea Rooms and Coach House will also be open and serving hot food and drinks throughout the day.
Because this event takes place in December, we advise visitors to consult our website and social media pages on the day for latest weather and travel information. Parking will be limited so it is advisable to use public transport (including trains to Newbury) where possible. "Carols for Charity" will take place outside on the East Lawns so please do wear sensible warm and waterproof outdoor clothing and footwear.
Oxfam is providing aid and long-term support to hundreds of thousands of people affected by the crisis in the Middle East.
Oxfam have been doing amazing work but still urgently need our help to continue supporting families forced from their homes by conflict. Millions of displaced people still living in Syria and those who have fled to neighbouring countries are still in urgent need of food, water and shelter. As the crisis reached its fourth anniversary this year, more than half the Syrian population is in need of humanitarian assistance.

Oxfam has reached over one million people already with desperately needed food, water and shelter. But the scale of this emergency is huge and we still urgently need your help to continue supporting families forced from their homes by conflict.
