Robin Hood: The Arrow of Destiny

Times are hard for the poor people of Nottingham, which means things have never been better for the wicked Sheriff and his tax collectors. But, never fear, everything’s bound to turn out fine as soon as Robin Hood comes to the rescue.  

Except what happens when he doesn’t? 

Has Robin got lost in Sherwood Forest or are there darker forces plotting against the greatest folk hero of old England? There’s only one way to find out and only one person brave enough to try. Maid Marian!

Follow Marian’s quest into the forest to discover why the legend of Robin Hood and his Merry Men isn’t quite what she imagined. What she finds there will change her life forever and add a thrilling new chapter to English folk history. There’s a lot more to becoming a hero than looking cool in green tights! 

Join us this summer for a bow-bending show for all the family with stirring songs, an archery tournament, stunning puppets and slapstick humour in our retelling of this classic tale of heroism, legendary teamwork and things that go wild in the woods...


Robin Hood is looking to recruit the most brave, cunning and loyal outlaws for his infamous band of merry men and women. If you are a master of disguise, can whittle a bow from the branch of a tree and can wield a sword against a foe, then Robin is looking for you! 11am-12pm every matinee show day. Tickets £5 Age 7-12 years. Click here to book!
