fayres, fetes, Events & SHows
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.
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
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.
