The Starlight Shooting Challenge

The Starlight Shooting Challenge, Highclere Castle

The Starlight Shooting Challenge was back for its 20th year at Highclere Castle in May 2024. 

Generously hosted by Lord and Lady Carnarvon at their home, the backdrop for Downton Abbey, the evnt has raised over £4m since it began.

We welcomed teams of 4 guns to enjoy a fun day of shooting across the estate's stunning grounds. Guests were in the expert hands of Purdey at The Royal Berkshire, who organise all the drives in partnership with Highclere Castle to make for an unforgettable shooting experience

There was time for food, drink and chance to chat between the drives and before returning to the Castle for a pre-lunch drinks reception on the Highclere lawns.​ Lunch took place in the famous LIbray with the menu chosen from the Highclere recipe archive.

Starlight is a charity very close to my heart and I have been proud to support the Highclere Shooting Challenge for over 14 years.  It is the best charity clay shoot I have been to and one of the highlights of my social calendar every year.
