HURRAH! Parties are back!
White Dragon Archery's Guide to Hosting a COVID-19-Secure Party
Here at White Dragon Archery we have adapted our activities so you can have fun and stay safe. No need to miss out on your birthday bash!
Our Nerf gun battles are on hold for the time being (call it a temporary truce). To make up for that, there's EVEN MORE archery fun!
You and your band of merry marauders will get to try out lots of exciting and challenging targets and some team games - with prizes!
Keeping people safe is a team effort, so please make sure some of your grown-ups stick around during the party to help children stay socially distanced if needed.
What's the venue like?
Our beautiful outdoor meadow ranges are available now. You can book a party for up to 20 children, plus up to eight adults.
With our two coaches helping you all along, that makes 30 - the maximum number of people allowed to meet under Government guidelines. Our ranges are big and everyone gets their own equipment, so there's plenty of room for all to be socially distanced and safe while having fun.
A portable toilet will be available for party attendees and there will be a shelter in case the weather is typically British!
Our indoor range is having an exciting refurbishment at the moment. Pending national guidelines, we plan to hold indoor parties from Saturday 12th September. If you'd like an indoor party, you can book with a fully-refundable deposit to reserve your chosen date - if indoor parties still aren't allowed, we can switch to an outdoor one.
For all parties, we provide a bow, armguard and a set of arrows for each child so they won't need to share equipment. All the equipment is cleaned before and after every use.
Adults: due to social distancing, we would like you to help with keeping the children in good order. This will help them to keep the appropriate distance while having a lot of fun!
Cake & candles:
You might want to consider doing sparklers instead of candles, so the birthday kid doesn’t have to blow on the candles. Or instead of one big cake, it might be easier to bring cupcakes (one for each guest) and have candles on your child’s own cupcake so he/she can still blow them out!
Avoid food/snacks or toys that kids put in their mouths (like whistles). We will soon have a unique party bag available to buy for attendees that includes some unique archery-themed items that can't be found anywhere else. Drop us a line for full details.
It’s a good idea to give kids their own boxed/bagged lunch so they each have their own food. This is similar to the approach taken by schools at the moment, but can be done in a really fun way using party-box or themed lunches.
Please remind your guests not to attend the party if they have any coronavirus symptoms:
a high temperature
a new, continuous cough
a loss of, or change to, your sense of smell or taste
We suggest that at least two adults stick around for the party to help children stay socially distanced if needed.
Sounds good! How much is it?
Our childrens' parties start from £150 if up to 10 children are coming. More children can be added for £15 each up to the maximum group number (20).
Adult parties, which can include children, are available from £200. Contact us for full details.
You can reserve your date with a 25% deposit and the full balance won't be due until a week before the party.
We know times are uncertain, so all monies, including the holding deposit, are fully refundable until midnight the night before the party if you need to cancel for any reason.
