Sacred Archery Events

"Sacred Archery event at Cricklade on the 12th of May postponed until mid-summer
Due to the continued very wet spell recently, there has been widespread flooding on the ground at Cricklade making it impossible to hold the archery event on Saturday the 12th of May.
The weather is forecast for more rain in May, and in order to ensure the event is enjoyed by all, it's felt better to postpone it until mid-summer (end of June beginning of July) in the hope that the weather will improve, but please keep checking this page for updates."


In order to take part in Sacred Archery events you must pre-register by completing the online registration form  below.

This is another Sacred Archery event to be held on a family run farm, by kind permission of of Hadji Shahid Khan. The afternoon will include practical instruction on how to shoot according to the ways of the blessed Companions of the Prophet s.a.s, with traditions and brief history of the sport that the Holy Prophet advised his nation to keep. Everybody from the age of 7 years to 70+ years will have the opportunity to “grab a bow and have a go” on this family orientated day, with special facilities for ladies with female instructors.  Food will be available to purchase (Afghan Palau and meat, other food, dessert, tea, coffee and juice) with a fun shoot at the end of the day, and an opportunity to shoot from the saddle of ‘Dobbin’ the wooden horse, to experience what it is like to shoot from horse back, and, insha'Allah, a demonstration of horseback archery by Hussain Khan who rides Arab horses!
