Pip Bickerstaffe will be presenting a seminar on longbow archery at Fort Purbrook on May 31st.
It will start at 10am and finish at about 4pm

I know that this is short notice, but there are some spaces left.

Subjects covered will include;
The medieval war bow, and modern target longbow its construction and use,
How to make a longbow, with a film showing the techniques used.
How to shoot well in the longbow, the techniques involved in getting the best from a wooden bow.
The morning will finish with a question and answer session.

After a break for lunch there will be the opportunity to shoot with Pip on hand to provide advice and guidance on how to improve your technique, so bring your bow with you. (If you don?t own a longbow the club does have a few bows that you may be able to borrow depending on the draw length and weight that you need)

Tickets will be ?15. (This will not include lunch, so please bring some sandwiches) All profits will go to the charity that runs the fort.
