If you’re looking to organise an event to remember, falconry is definitely a good starting point! Judy will be more than happy to help and with birds to entertain all, they’ll never be a dull moment.  Please just call us to discuss your ideas.

School Visits

Judy will visit your school bringing a selection of her feathered friends. The pupils will be introduced to these amazing birds of prey and will have the opportunity to hold one or two of them, as well as learn some interesting facts about them. The birds are an ideal addition when teaching Medieval and Tudor history, explorers and adventurers, night and day, castle themed projects, predators and prey, nocturnal animals, science and conservation. Talks and presentations can be provided on all of these subjects.


Lainston Falconry can provide interactive talks for groups, clubs and meetings. A selection of birds will accompany the falconer and Judy will talk about many subjects including the history and art of falconry, training birds of prey, all accompanied by presentations and practical handling. A selection of the birds can be held for photographs and Judy will be available to answer any questions. A static display of the birds can also provide alternative ‘models’ for photographic and art clubs.
