ARENA DISPLAYS (FOR PACKAGES 1 AND 3 ONLY)
Stated as “A once in a lifetime opportunity, not to be missed” and “Spell-binding” the falconry displays are truly unforgettable. The team exhibit the natural attributes and abilities of the birds, whilst exhibiting the true sport of falconry, at close quarters to the audience. Music is periodically involved in the displays as well as an educational and entertaining commentary. With the added extra of the choreographed music, the displays become an amazing attraction, drawing the crowds like no other falconry display in the UK. The public become involved in the displays.
Hawkeye Falconry UK offers to undertake two 30-minute displays throughout the day or one 45 minute display. This is of course in addition to the static display that will go on throughout the event. Of course, if this itinerary does not work for you, we can adapt everything to suit your event. Falcons, Hawks, Owls and Eagles are involved.
REQUIREMENTS FOR ARENA DISPLAYS – The team and birds can work in almost any arena size. Bigger the better, but as a guide, we recommend 25m x 25m as a minimum. If this size arena is not possible, please do get in contact and let us know – we are normally able to slightly alter things to suit. Hawkeye does house a professional PA system that we can use in the arena if there is not already one on site.
'HAVE A GO' SESSIONS (FOR PACKAGES 2 AND 3 ONLY)
Our 'Have A Go' Sessions have proven to be a real hit with either large or smaller events. Ourselves at Hawkeye will provide a PA if necessary. The birds for each session vary in size and species, so there will always be a bird suitable for everyone during the day. The sessions run between 10 - 15 minutes in duration. The sessions provide the opportunity for members of the public to experience flying a bird themselves, under close supervision. All ages can experience flying a bird throughout the day.
The sessions are ran on a first come first serve basis. All participants wanting to partake in the sessions, will need to come to the falconry stand beforehand to sign up. We normally accomodate a maximum of 12 people each session, with no extra charge.
A maximum of 5 'Have A Go' Sessions will take place at suitable times during the day, between our arena displays (Package 3).
REQUIREMENTS FOR ‘HAVE A GO’ – We require a small arena of around 8m x 8m minimum, sited next to where the static display will be. It would be appreciated if this arena could be in place before we arrive.
STATIC DISPLAY (FOR ALL PACKAGES 1, 2 AND 3)
Hawkeye Falconry UK, pride themselves on being to the most professional of standards, and therefore the team bring a large range of birds from our team of Owls, Hawks, Falcons and Eagles, from all around the world, to be on static display during the day, whilst ensuring that each of the birds gets flown at the allocated times given. The team will bring a self-contained, secured and enclosed weathering for the birds during the event. The static area gives protection to the birds whilst not performing, as well as the opportunity for the public to get a close-up, personal view of the birds - also allowing the opportunity for questions to be answered and photos taken.
REQUIREMENTS FOR STATIC DISPLAY - A grassed area is preferred, but if not available, please let us know when enquiring - this is no problem at all. We normally ask for an area of 15m x 12m for the static display. This includes the vehicles within the area, which are preferred to have nearby at all times.
