Archery Have a Go's -Sometimes it is good to try something, just to see if you like it. Archery is no different.
As a club or as a household, we often run what we call "Have-A Go's". If you organize an event in the East Sussex area, whether it be a village or school fete, a specialist show,a corporate day out or simply a family fun-day, we can come along with all of the required equipment and let your visitors, staff, or friends shoot a few arrows (under supervision and basic instruction). We can put these events on at your venue but there are obviously some requirements to be met for safety reasons. Outdoors, we need an area at least 70 meters long and at least 30 meters wide which is fenced off so that no-one can get into the area behind the targets. We provide backstop netting for additional safety and to prevent arrows being lost in the grass, as well barrier fencing to stop the public access in the wrong area. Indoor venues may also be suitable, provided they are at least 20 meters long and 10 meters wide with access from one end only. We do levy a small charge. We're not trying to make millions of pounds for the club, but obviously there are costs involved with providing the targets, bows, arrows and the other equipment we bring along. At school fetes and other charitable events, we generally charge a fixed amount for each three or six arrows and donate part of the proceedings to the organizers. While for a corporate event with a limited number of participants, we would negotiate an amount for the whole event. We can even do all this is Medieval attire, if required! If you require a Sword Fighting demonstration/ Household living history or For the Drummers to be present with us, we will need to discuss this with each event manager, whom I will happily put you in touch with when you book the archery.
