Corporate Events

We have many years of working with companies large and small to host clay pigeon shooting events.

The team at J.C.Marsh Sporting Clays can provide shooting for complete novices to experienced shooters, we have a team of fully qualified shooting instructors to help and encourage all guests to enjoy the thrill of smashing clays with 12 bore shotguns, in the most picturesque venues throughout the North East.

We shoot with 2 teams of 8, one team acts as loaders whilst the other team shoots. We generally shoot 5 drives per day and 500 cartridges are provided for each gun.

The most prestige days start with a full cooked breakfast served in the Hall’s dining room.

The teams then head out to the estate to shoot 2 drives, before 11’s are served in the field.

We shoot one more drive before lunch, which can be served at either the Hall or a shooting lodge.

Following lunch, we shoot 2 further drives, before returning to the Hall for afternoon tea, or evening meal.

The shooting days can be as bespoke as desired and the team at J.C.Marsh Sporting Clays will work with the shoot captain on all aspects of the day to ensure the shooting guests have a relaxed and enjoyable day.

If required, by appointment we can provide very experienced and qualified instructors on the day, to assist shooters who may not have a license or a novice, but would still like to participate in the days shooting.

Health and Safety along with Risk Assessments are available for each shoot. We are fully insured by the NFU with event Liability Insurance, all of which can be supplied upon request.

“Can’t recommend The Hidden Oak enough - far exceeded our expectations and can’t thank them enough. From starting to look at a venue to the day after everything was dealt with and surpassed our expectations. We set the room up early and all of the guests commented on how amazing the day was. I really cannot express what a fantastic day it was. Thank you again!”
