Robert Hardy, actor and longbow expert, will be giving a talk on the English longbow at The Longbow Shop to mark the 600th anniversary of the battle of Agincourt.
As well as a talk on the subject the actor, who says he has had a life-long fascination with the longbow, will be signing copies of his book on the subject.
He said, “The Longbow was the super weapon of its day. It has been my life’s study since at the age of six I discovered two bows in an attic and was fascinated by them.”
Jason Powell, founder and one of three directors of The Longbow Shop, added, “From the first time I loosed an arrow from a traditional English longbow I was smitten. We’re delighted to be welcoming actor and Longbow expert Robert Hardy to our shop for this very rare and exclusive event to celebrate the 600th anniversary of the Battle of Agincourt.”
The event will be held from 10am to 4pm at The Longbow Shop premises on 25 May, and a limited number of tickets are available.
Tickets will cost £50, which includes lunch and refreshments through the day, and are available from The Longbow Shop.
