Adrian Caddy Archery (ACA) was formed by former TV executive and Nature Conservationist Adrian Caddy under the guidance of multi-title Field Archery Champion; Tony Weston (founder and owner of The Archery Company).
Adrian became a fully accredited Coach with the National Field Archery Society in 2005 and was immediately contracted by Living Heritage Events Ltd to host their Field Archery events at ALL Living Heritage Game& Country Shows throughout England from 2006 onwards.
Adrian has also attained Intermediate and Advanced Instructor Certification at the National Field Archery Association headquarters in the USA, and is an Archery GB (GNAS) Leader. ACA is fully insured and CRB-checked; Adrian and the ACA Team have been described as “Gifted, inspiring archery instructors” by private, corporate and youth organisations throughout Britain. Europe’s No.1 Archery publication, Bow International, is a regular publisher of Adrian’s articles and features.
Airgun target shooting (air gunning) is one of the most popular field sports and pastime, which is well regarded within country life and its pursuits.
This year, the ATEO airguns range is to be exclusive to Living Heritage and will form a partnership with ACA Archery in the new Shooting Village.
For those new to the sports, both organisers are uniquely equipped and qualified to safely introduce you to shooting and archery.

RAPTOR (Responsive Aiming and Tactical Operation Range) is, as far as we can find, the first of its kind anywhere in the UK, and uses magazine fed paintball markers and a variety of tactical equipment to deliver a more realistic and unique paintball experience. Many people are put off from taking part in paintball because of the physical nature of the game and the pain from being hit! Well, our range takes the ‘pain’ out of paintball by shooting at interactive targets which don’t shoot back, all within a relaxed yet competitive environment!
Clay Pigeon Shooting is a thrilling experience, demanding calm concentration, a keen eye and quick reactions. Perfect your aim and shots and soon you will be notching up your ‘kills’.
Of course, these are not real birds and no one gets hurt, making it a great sport for all – young and old, men and women alike. Why not find out if you have what it takes on the ‘Have a Go’ stand and see if you can become a crack marksman in one of Britain’s fastest growing field sports.
