The Longbow Club is based in the North West and is a not-for-profit traditional archery club affiliated with Archery GB and the ILAA. The Longbow Shop will be onsite with a range of bows for display and sale throughout the weekend
The ILAA seeks to lower the threshold of entry into the sport of longbow archery and to assist the safe organisation of insured traditional longbow shooting. It covers all the aiming and ranging traditions of the longbow as practised into the 16th Century. It seeks to inform archers and other interested parties of their history and of requisite best practise. It encourages historic research into the traditional forms of shooting in all countries where it took place as a form of training and/or in battle
