Over 1,000 archers from all over the globe will descend on Britain at the start of 2014, competing for more than £20,000 in prize money, visiting the largest trade show this side of the Atlantic and enjoying the largest archery festival ever seen in Europe.
The tournament isn't just for the pros, though: it's a chance to compete on a world stage, in an international-level competition – and enjoy the atmosphere that comes along with it. Whatever bowstyle, age or tournament experience, this is one festival you can't afford to miss out on.
Make no mistake: The 2014 European Archery Festival will be the biggest and best event in your archery calendar.

With members of the team who delivered the London 2012 Games heading the team, I've no doubt the European Archery Festival will live up to our galactic expectations!
