Axe throwing Bridgend

Temporary event formats

To fit with new Welsh Government guidelines,  we’ve adapted our event formats to run events for one household or extended household “bubble” at at time.

So this is a unique opportunity for you to book a private session with us with a dedicated instructor, until we can increase our event numbers and take group bookings again. We’re running events for couples, small families & extended household “bubbles” – so there’s something for everyone.

Keep looking forward ➡

I usually joke with groups that I love archery & show them my tattoo 🎯

I do ♥ archery. But the reason behind having these arrows tattooed on my arm is a bit more than that. And feels relevant at the moment, so I thought I’d share with you…

There can be many reasons behind someone’s arrow tattoo and depending on their design. For me, as arrows can only go in one direction, they symbolise that we always have to keep moving forward. And although you have to first pull them back to release them (draw, in archery), just as we all have challenges and set backs that pull us back sometimes, all we can do is keep pointing and moving forward ➡

Several arrows together is a symbol of strength 💪and for me represents the key people I have around me.

With the challenges we’ve all faced and continue to face, I am finding this useful to keep in mind.

I hope you’re all staying safe, keeping well and looking forward, Rachel ♥

Autism friendly bushcraft & archery sessions in Bridgend

Come & join us for some bushcraft & archery fun in Bridgend with our autism friendly events.

We have experience working with children and adults on the autistic spectrum through our work with schools and community groups. We’d like to make our sessions more accessible. So we’re trialling some autism friendly bushcraft & archery events, which you can book on to individually. And we’ll make them a regular event if there’s interest and demand for them.

Events are 1.5 hours and tickets are £15. You can buy tickets on Eventbrite here:

Dungeons and Dragons meets Bushcraft Adventures for a stag do to remember!

On Saturday we welcomed Gandalf, Jack Sparrow and various characters from Dungeons and Dragons for a stag do to remember. It was pretty memorable for us too! 👍

The day started with lots of laughter and me giggling as the group wandered in to our woodland. I knew from the start they were going to be a fun group.
