Robin Hood Festival

In honour of its most famous outlaw, Nottingham holds an annual Robin Hood Festival in Sherwood Forest. Throughout the week visitors are entertained by jugglers and jesters, strolling minstrels and street theatre performers, a falconer and experts in medieval combat.

The event kicks off in customary style with the Sheriff of Nottingham and his cronies attempting to put a stop to the event. No Robin Hood Festival would be complete without archery and, down by the Major Oak, costumed longbow archers are on hand in full costume to demonstrate their skills and give visitors a chance to test their prowess.
