Our Friday Have a Go Archery Lessons are relaxed and a lot of fun. These sessions last 60 minutes and are suitable for complete beginners. Your group will be kept fairly small so that everyone gets plenty of shooting time.
We start by getting everyone equipped, giving a short safety briefing and a demonstration of the correct shooting technique. You will then learn to shoot safely and confidently. After plenty of practice we will teach you how to score, and finish off the session with a fun competition.
Please note our Friday have a go archery lessons are generally aimed a adults, although we can accommodate children with a minimum age of 10 years old when shooting alongside a parent or guardian who is also booked in to shoot.
These sessions are run at our indoor venue in Archway North London: Caxton House Community Centre, 129 St.John’s Way, Archway, N19 3RQ. Please double check which start time you have booked, as we have sessions starting at 6:15pm and 7:45pm.
Our Have a Go Archery Lessons can also be purchased as a gift voucher.
Additional info: If your session has to be cancelled due to Government restrictions we will issue you a credit voucher valid for 12 months. No refunds are possible.
Anyone under the age of 18 will require a parent of guardian to shoot with them. For younger children please take a look at our Children & Family Archery Club

The Have A Go class was a superb first experience. Really excellent instructors, they give you confidence when you are way off target… and as an Absolute Beginner I soon began to feel at ease and LOVED this first session. I had wanted to take up archery for some time and now understand how addictive and inspiring it is… A magical feeling shooting for the first time… Superb class structure, clear guidance as to what not to do (as so much depends on posture and timing…) Great setting and safety, nice group and I’m SO looking forward to the Beginners Classes in October. Excellent work!
I always wanted to try archery and was pleasantly surprised to find a club in my area that had taster sessions. The instructor was wonderful calm and relax, the people very welcoming and friendly. Firing my first arrow and hitting the target was exhilarating! I felt that I had learned new skills like concentration, focus and relaxation which seems odd but true. It was enjoyable, relaxing and great fun. I would highly recommend it to anyone who asks. If you’re interested in archery and you don’t know where to begin I’d say the Experience Archery is a good place to start.
