1346 ArcherY Experience

Be your own event as you immerse yourself in and become part of history

Come with us to the past as we take you on an exciting journey to experience the awesome power of the weapon that dominated the battle fields of Medieval history.

This day is designed to immerse yourself in history while shooting our hand made longbows and arrows, we take you on a journey in the footsteps of your ancesters. Your day starts as a friendly guide welcomes you and leads the way to our Medieval encampment. Within our authentic tents are some light refreshments served in hand made medieval cups.  You will then learn the skill of the bow as your instructor takes you through the challenges.  Should you prove yourself worth your coin you will be recruited to the army and issued a company surcoat which you will proudly wear as part of your garrison. Not only will you receive your wages, you will compete for more throughout the day, look after them as you will need to barter safe passage through your travels.

Break for lunch and enjoy the delights of working class cuisine, a hot pottage and if you are very lucky, perhaps some meat and even some pepper!

Spend a day with Now Strike Archery as we teach you to use an authentic longbow and the history behind it. Feel the power of the weapon that dominated warfare for over 300 years while raising the common man into the upper echelons of infamy and thrusting our steel tipped arrows into the nightmares of our enemies.

Our Immersive Medieval Longbow Experiences run selected days throughout the year, with weekends getting filled up quickly, so please book early to avoid disappointment. Suitable for ages 8+
