Carlisle for kids in October Half Term

archery-cumbri_20181010-114147_1 Archery kids' event

​There's loads happening across Carlisle and Cumbria in preparation for Halloween and, dare we say it, Christmas in a couple of months! We've given some thought to how we can help keep your kids entertained and out of your hair for a day in the half term holidays. We have put together the ultimate day for 8-14 year olds down at Talkin Tarn Country Park, Brampton. We think it's so good we've called it Talkin AWESOME. We also have some Archery Experiences for the whole family, friends and you're welcome to come along even if it's just you - ANYONE from age 8+.

​To suit the time of year Talkin AWESOME (23rd October) will be a land based activity day. Fully supervised by our experienced instructors, your kids will have a brilliant time as they experience Archery, Orienteering and our very own Treasure Chest and Woodland challenges. With bespoke activities you won't have tried these activities in the same way anywhere else.

Lunch is included in the day, courtesy of the Talkin Tarn Tea Rooms. We welcome you to drop off your kids from 9am and collect them for 3:30. If you do need us to extend the day just let us know. Places on these Talkin AWESOME days are limited and are pre-booked via our website.

Archery Experiences & Twilight Archery

You'll always have a great time with our Archery Experience Events. On 20th October we will host our next beginner sessions at Talkin Tarn Country Park. With a Halloween twist, you will enjoy shooting lots of arrows at authentic straw targets, sweets, balloons and even a pumpkin! The last session of the day will be in the early evening as the sun sets!

Sessions last for around one hour and pre-booking is essential as places are limited. You will receive full coaching from our experienced, professional instructor to help you improve your accuracy and technique as you progress through a series of one to one tuition, practice rounds, games and challenges.

​We welcome individuals to come along and they'll have a great time as part of the group. Please do tell your friends about these events as they'll not want to miss out. If you book for more than one participant then you will benefit from a lower price.


If October Half Term doesn't work for you, please sign up to our mailing list and keep a check on our Facebook Page and Website for upcoming events. We run Adventure Day Camps in most school holidays and have Archery Beginner Sessions (for Adults and kids from age 8) throughout the year. We'd love to have you along! These experience days make great Christmas presents.
