Each year, Colchester stages 'The Archer of the Fayre' as part of its Medieval Oyster Fayre, where archers from all over the country attend to take on England's finest medieval re-enactor English longbow archers. It is held in the Lower Castle Park in the centre of the 'Oldest Recorded Town in Britain'.
Members of a recognised archery clubs or re-enactment groups, are invited to compete for the annual honour of becoming our Archer of the Fayre.
