Bowlore is a

medieval archery &

weapons display group, based in Somerset, England.

We are a small team of family and friends with over twenty years experience in historical re-enactment, and we're focused on providing quality entertainment and education. We show a panorama of the whole medieval period, and display the progression of weaponry and skills from that time.


We have experience working for a wide range of venues, including castles, stately homes, festivals, conventions, community events, weddings, Bonfire Night and Christmas celebrations, and we are always happy to tailor our shows and displays to meet your individual requirements.


We are also available for film work and weapons training/consultation/fight choreography.​


With a variety of activities on offer including: longbow, crossbow, weapons shows ~ sharp-sword cutting demonstrations ~ combat displays ~ sword school ~ historical talks ~ battlefield medicine displays ~ hands-on weapon & armour displays~ medieval tented encampment ~ have-a-go archery with lifesize 3D animal targets ~ fire-arrows & and our unique flaming-sword duel ~ you're sure to find a combination that suits you!
