If you need a venue to host a charity event then The Elephant and Castle could help. During the last 12 months we have hosted several events for groups that have raised money for Menphys (Charity Shoot), The Blue Cross (Doggy Tea Party) and The British Paralympic Association (Easter Party) to name but a few, as well as other events organised by ourselves to assist local charities.
