Christmas at the Castle

Join us for the festive fundraising event of the year! We’re celebrating the incredible conservation work achieved this year by DSWF supported projects and programmes, with an extra dose of seasonal spirit.

It’s never too early to start filling in your Christmas calendar! We’re so excited to bring you

Christmas at the Castle‘, set in the stunning Arundel Castle in West Sussex.


It’s also never too early to start filling those Christmas stockings – or ticking a few presents off the list. So, why not peruse our silent auction, which is now live! You don’t have to be attending to take part, and you could secure a winning bid on something incredible. Take a look what’s on offer via the link below!

There’ll be a plethora of wildlife art on display (including an original Van Dyck masterpiece in the Barons’ Hall) to get your cultural tastebuds flowing – but there’ll also be yummy yuletide canapés and Christmas bubbles to start the evening in the best of spirits.

‘Tis the season to be jolly’ – so you can expect some traditional carols and entertainment to keep those spirits soaring, courtesy of a choir and friend of DSWF, English soprano Laura Wright.

It’s also your chance to get an update in person from DSWF ambassador, actor and conservationist, David Oakes, together with our project partner for Painted Dogs, Peter Blinston, on our conservation work in Zimbabwe.

There’ll also be a selection of incredible wildlife artwork on display.

Then there’s our exclusive experiences and other items available in our silent auction which is now live! So, click on the link and get bidding to nab an incredible gift (even if it’s just for yourself) before Christmas.

Celebrating DSWF Conservation

Arundel Castle is the gem in West Sussex’s crown of places to go. Our Christmas at the Castle event is your opportunity to glimpse this impressive landmark behind the usually locked doors in winter. Join us for a celebratory drink, canapés, and an evening celebrating conservation in the Baron’s Hall. 

We’re also extremely happy to announce the event is being supported by Fauna Brewing, who are based at Arundel Castle. In their own words, Fauna makes great tasting beer and does great things with it – such as their Wild Dog IPA, which supports our painted dog conservation projects.   

This a not-to-be-missed event packed with festive feeling, so put the date in the diary and secure your tickets now to avoid disappointment.
