Whistle Punks has taken axe throwing out of the woods and into the heart of Bristol, making it easy for you to give it a try yourself.
In this private experience for two, your host will demonstrate how to safely and successfully throw an axe, giving you all the tips you need. Once you’ve each given it a try and your axe is hitting the target, it’s time for a tournament. You’ll have your own lane and an instructor on hand to help with more pointers, as you compete to be crowned the ultimate axe thrower.
All Whistle Punks experiences are designed for complete beginners and you’ll have an instructor on hand throughout. You’ll be throwing at their vibrant All Saint Street venue, where you’ll have a fully stocked bar ready for afterwards and the delicious Pizzarova on hand for food.
There are no upcoming dates for this experience.
Existing dates have all sold out, but you can book now and schedule later when new dates are released.
All guests must wear masks at this time. Whistle Punks are following the strict guidelines set by the government which allow them to deliver safe and fun experiences for their players. They have assessed every part of their experience; the space, team, training, the way players move through their venue, food and drinks and how they look after you. They are also having monthly health and safety reviews, as well as daily deep cleans of the entire venue, with a focus on frequently used areas.
All guests must wear closed shoes whilst throwing. Come along wearing comfy clothes that won’t restrict your movement, and ideally flat shoes.
Whistle Punks was set up by John and Jools in 2016, with the aim of creating a socially competitive experience with an edge. Their founding London venue opened as the first urban axe throwing location in the UK, and soon the business grew. Fast forward to 2019 and their first Bristol venue was opened in the heart of the city. Since then Whistle Punks has been following through on its promise to celebrate each individual and encourage contribution from everyone. Axe throwing is all about technique over strength, and as most people have never thrown an axe before, it makes for a great skill leveller - everyone misses the first time but within minutes you'll be sinking axes and celebrating like no one's business!
Jack is an actor, voiceover artist and computer games whiz - and the manager and host of Whistle Punks Bristol. He joined in 2017 after being stopped in his tracks by an online advert looking for people to teach axe throwing... In Jack’s own words, “I don’t think there’s a person alive who couldn’t be intrigued by throwing axes”. The best part of Jack’s job is meeting people who are initially quite nervous and then seeing them get the hang of throwing. In fact, the people most nervous or dubious about throwing their first axe often turn out to be the ones in the final!
