The Honourable Artillery Company has graciously allowed the Fraternity of Saint George the use of its splendid and historic Artillery Garden for a shoot at the Marks and a Championship Shoot at Speed to raise money for the HAC. Benevolent Fund.
The Shoot is by kind permission of the Honourable Artillery Company’s Court of Assistants and its Chief Executive.
The Shoot is open to all by pre-registration.
The Artillery Garden is the last part of the former Finsbury Fields. No formal shoot to the Marks has been held in the area for some two Centuries: archers of the Fraternity of Saint George are the exception.
There is no equivalent archery field in the world that bears comparison to the Artillery Garden. Here in the City of London lies the internationally hallowed ground for the longbow archer. The chance to shoot here is an honour for us all and one not to be missed.
The coming shoot has historic significance and will be an occasion of quiet splendour.
