Medieval Archery Days

Posted in Archery Events by Beyond

Shooting a traditional English longbow with medieval arrows really brings the history of archery to life!

We run historic archery events across the UK for parties from 20 to 200, with activities ranging from pure archery to an explosive combination of historic weaponry, including black-powder rifle shooting, crossbow shooting, axe throwing and more.

With experienced, professional and knowledgeable instructors, our events are guaranteed to leave your guests breathless, though that could just be the effort of pulling a genuine tudor warbow!

We will always design the day around you, but to give you an idea of what is possible, here are just a few of the activities we run:

  • Traditional target, clout (long range targets) and flight (distance) archery, using high quality reproduction English longbows & warbows and Asian horsebows.
  • Black powder rifle shooting – with all the explosions and smoke that goes with them.
  • Falconry, including flying and holding these amazing birds of prey.
  • Axe throwing contests, using single handed axes and competition standard double headed throwing axes.

And if you really want to make sure that your day has a real feel of authenticity we can provide:

  • Medieval food and refreshments, including authentic cookery demonstrations.
  • Hog Roasts, for when the pease pudding and curds just aren’t filling the hole.
  • Bonfire, lit by a flaming arrow shot by your day’s champion archer.
  • Medieval marquees, crockery and cutlery, costumes and pretty much anything else – how far do you want to go?!
