Here’s an activity that will set you all a quiver, learn the ancient art of archery. British archers were once the cream of the world’s armed forces, their famous longbows winning such victories as Poitiers, Crecy and Agincourt. In legend Robin Hood lead his merry band of merry men against the evil Sheriff of Nottingham armed with bows and arrows. More recently British archers won Olympic medals at Barcelona, Seoul and Athens. Now it’s your turn to see if you can emulate their successes. After welcome drinks on arrival, you’ll be given a full safety briefing by a highly experienced instructor. Once this is complete you will receive expert tuition on how to aim, knock and loose your arrows (i.e. fire them) and how to improve your accuracy. Using modern recurve bows you will have several practice rounds before your experience culminates with a competition and a fun game of Balloon Mayhem!

      The Archery experience is no longer in Sherwood Forest but is now approximately 15 minutes drive away from visitors centre. New Venue was great, very well organised and all staff were very friendly and professional. There is a small canteen to grab something to eat & drink if required. We went as a couple & were joined by another couple & a family group, so 10 people in total. We thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience from start to finish. Safety was taken very seriously and did not detract from having fun at all. It was pitched just right & the instructor (Jed) had a brilliant sense of humour & kept us laughing as well teaching us without preaching. There was a great atmosphere & we really enjoyed the friendly sense of competition that he fostered in the group. We had a short downpour at about an hour in & the weather was particular windy so we couldn't do the balloons but it everything was well adapted. Would definitely recommend to all ages, abilities & personalities.
      What would you improve for next time? Nothing ( prepare for ALL weather)

      Location: Stafford Age: 55-64 Bought For Myself Occasion: Just because!
      Contacting the company organising the sessions initially was difficult. However once I was in their system the communication and organisation was spot on. I took my adult son and we both enjoyed the session and the instructor was excellent, it was more of a fun session than detailed instruction. We were only told the basics and away we went. Next time I will only go to an adult only session as the group included children as young as 9 which slowed up the session
      What would you improve for next time? Make the sessions adult only or children only

      The booking process was easy and fast. On the day, they text you the details once more, just in case! The woman who taught us was lovely and made us laugh loads. I'm already looking at when I can do this again!

      I really enjoyed the experience. The weather was lovely and the instructions were clear. We had a team competition between 2 teams and then an individual competition which I won!! Surprise.

      The Archery was made great because of the staff running it. They were always helpful and by the end of the experience I was a much better archer. The challenges they set are great and can also be very competitive, which I thought made the whole experience greater.

      Try anything
      Location: Hednesford, Cannock, Staffordshire Age: 55-64 Bought For Daughter Occasion: Birthday
      After a quick bit of safety advice and instruction on how to use the bow everyone got off to a flying start. The instructor was extremely helpful and made the whole thing fun first shooting to get the best score then trying to hit around the target to get the lowest score. By the end of the session everyone was hitting the target some better than others.
      What would you improve for next time? Nothing it was really good even down to the location.
