Raphael Historic Falconry are the longest established professional historic falconers in the UK. Established in 1998, we are multi-period time-travelling performers and heritage specialists offering falconry productions of superior quality and class. We work at historic properties and deliver exciting live action events in historic context – no pantomime foolery, tricks or bad jokes, just fine quality falconry in fabulous period costumes to an enchanting story-style commentary. We have a large team of authentic bird species including Goshawk, Merlin, Peregrine, Lanner, Buzzard, Gyr and Golden Eagle. We also possess a vast knowledge of English falconry history which allows us to deliver a genuinely immersive historical experience. Our theatrical style performances fit perfectly at a wealth of historic venues including specially adapted events for museums and venues with limited outdoor space. Looking for a Roman, Saxon, Norman, early Medieval, late Medieval, Tudor, Elizabethan, Georgian, Victorian, Great War, 1920s or WWII falconer with accurate social stories of the era? Look no further! We even offer unique themed events with specially written scripts for Christmas, Halloween, Easter and Harvest. We work for clients as large as prestigious as Windsor Castle, Alnwick Castle and English Heritage, right through to small charities, museums and private estates. Our performances feature at a myriad of events including Medieval jousts, Roman festivals, Victorian fairs and Wartime events BUT most of our work is delivering stand-alone events where we are the sole attraction with an exciting and highly stylised custom written programme.
