The Bear Grylls Adventure is giving people with a certain name free entry to the attraction's archery site in September.

For a limited time only, anyone with the name Robin or Robyn will be able to try out archery at the Birmingham attraction free of charge, giving them the chance to embrace their inner Robin Hood.

The offer is in place to celebrate the attraction's archery instructors completing their training with Archery GB.

If you think you’d like to give archery a go, you could try it out at The Bear Grylls Adventure which is located next to The National Exhibition Centre in Birmingham.

Anyone trying out archery can expect to hone their aim with the help of a member of the professionally skilled bowmen.

The archers have all been awarded the Archery GB Instructor Award meaning they know how to shoot arrows, prepare and deliver archery sessions, set up a range and ensure safety rules are met.

Before heading to the range, visitors will be briefed by the instructors and they can look forward to taking on the targets and embracing their competitive side with some games and additional challenges.

How do people called Robin or Robyn get a free archery session?

The opportunity is open every weekend in September and to get a free archery session all you have to do is send a copy of your photo ID via email to, proving your name is Robin or Robyn.

The site also offers archery sessions for children aged 5-7 on Saturdays and Sundays.

If you're interested in booking a visit, even if your name isn't Robin or Robyn, you can find out more about the attraction via its website.

Regarding their partnership with The Bear Grylls Adventure, Archery GB’s Head of Participation, Gayle Pink, said: “We are absolutely thrilled to have such a high-profile organisation such as The Bear Grylls Adventure join our AAP programme.

“Part of the criteria to become an AAP is that staff have up-to-date Archery GB qualifications (Instructor or Coach), as a first step, so therefore we worked with the site to deliver an Archery GB Instructor Award for all staff.

“Jamila Bi, our Legacy Co-ordinator delivered a bespoke course at the attraction, focusing on inclusion and how to adapt activities to cater for young people and people with a variety of disabilities."

Lee Phillips, General Manager at The Bear Grylls Adventure, said: “We can’t wait to see the archery range full of modern-day Robin Hoods – you never know, we might discover the next archery legend!

“The hopeful heroes will get the best help in honing their bullseye aim with the guidance of our excellent, GB-trained team of archers.

“The combined experience of the team offers a really unique opportunity to learn from the very best and push yourself to gain a new skill, which is what we’re all about at The Bear Grylls Adventure.”
