At Highclere we are always thinking of ways to give back our local community. Over the years we have held a number of charitable events including…
Easter Egg Hunt
Held annually on Easter Sunday, families, friends and visitors from far and wide come to the Castle to join in the fun, and raise money for various charities, including Naomi House Children’s Hospice and The Murray Parish Trust.
The Highclere 10k Run
In September, the 10km run in aid of Multiple Sclerosis is always a huge success. Runners of all ages take part, including members of the Highclere office and Lord Carnarvon, navigating the rather muddy and hilly course around the grounds and fields of Highclere. We hope many more can join us in the future to raise funds for this great cause.
The Harvest Festival service at St Micheal's and All Angels Church in October of each year welcomes chickens, horses, sheep (and churchgoers!) to join in the service to celebrate and sing hymns.
Songs for Peace
In December, Highclere opens its doors to hundreds of musicians, singers and members of the public to sing ‘songs for peace’ and raise awareness and funds for charity appeals. Last year, we had musical entertainment throughout the day, including carol singing and a service conducted by the former Archbishop Lord Carey, and we’d like to thank everyone who came to support.
