What will the day will look like?
The battlefield is set in seven acres of woodland with team bases, bunkers, hides, barricades and battlefield sounds. Your team will use sophisticated infra-red gaming guns that are so up-to date and realistic that the military use them for their own training purposes.

Team members will be given tactical briefings from experienced Marshals, they will be set team objectives. Everyone will be dressed in camouflage gear and drilled, so they are ready to succeed on their missions in the most realistic simulation possible - short of joining the army.

Players have to plan their attack, protect their flanks and their comrades to successfully achieve the objectives of each battlefield mission.

Do you have any testimonials from previous schools we can include?
My school is a school for children with social emotional and mental health issues. We organise many activities across the North West to reward our pupils and to help them to engage with peers and staff. We visit Battlefield LIVE in Knutsford on a regular basis, the staff there are brilliant with all of our pupils irrespective of their needs or apparent behaviour. The pupils thoroughly enjoy the challenges and games and can’t wait to return their each time. I would recommend Battlefield LIVE Knutsford for pupils of any age, our pupils are aged 8 to 16. Staff participate too, it’s also great for team building and in particular staff well being. Noel Conreen School Business Manager.

'The team at Battlefield Live Knutsford were fantastic in facilitating a fun experience for a number of our students from Sandbach School. The students were exposed to a great activity that they thoroughly enjoyed and were able to develop team work, leadership and communication skills that assist in their educational development too. From our first contact the booking process was hassle-free and they fully understood our needs. I would highly recommended them and i'm sure we will be returning in the future.’ Sandbach School.
