Experience archery without the need, desire or expense of joining a local archery club. With Longbow Events you can book a private archery party for birthday celebrations, stag and hen days, community groups or corporate team building events. You can book them indoors in our archery range or outdoors at your venue if it is suitable.
Our Group Archery events are led by our qualified and experienced coaches and after we have run through the safety procedures and how to shoot you’ll be hitting the targets and enjoying the games and competitions before you know it! All the equipment will be provided all you need to do is supply the smile!
