Don’t forget Pheon Archery can also offer themed have-a-go sessions. Medieval, Tudor, Victorian or even Robin Hood! Just ask.
A pheon is an heraldic arrowhead! Used most notably in English heraldry and later by the British Government to denote ownership, where it is known as a broad arrow.
During the school holidays, Pheon Archery can often be found at the fabulous Hartlebury Castle, home of Worcestershire County Museum. During August, Rod will be there every Tuesday and visitors are welcome to try their hand at shooting a bow.

Archery. Victorian ladies used it to while away a summer afternoon. Genghis Khan used it to conquer half the known world. Zen masters use it to help obtain enlightenment. What can you use it for?
Over four 2-hour sessions you will learn to understand the principles of archery and instinctive shooting in order to become one with the bow. In this high-octane, fast moving digital world, explore ways in which you can become more mindful, focused and in the present moment through the pursuit of the ancient art of archery. Take time out for yourself to rediscover your inner calm.
