Robin Hood Festival at Sherwood Forest

Robin Hood Festival at Sherwood Forest

The 38th Robin Hood Festival gets underway on Saturday 3rd August with the Knights of Nottingham Medieval Jousting Display Team headlining the show in the festival arena.

Their all-action re-telling of the legend of Robin Hood has delighted audiences since the team made their festival debut in 2022.

The festival continues across each weekend in August with Fantasy in the Greenwood, complete with orcs and walking trees, on the 10th and 11th August.

Sherwood Forest is part of Nottinghamshire’s only National Nature Reserve (NNR) and there’s a weekend devoted to wildlife awareness and activities on 17th and 18th August.

Then, on the August Bank Holiday Weekend (24th-26th August), The Sherwood Outlaws deliver their fabulous arena show with dazzling hand-to-hand combat displays and their trademark blend of comedy and drama.

The weekend also includes the Nottinghamshire Day Festival, celebrating much of what makes the county great.

Across the Festival weekends will be a host of other brilliant performers including perennial favourites The Medieval Maniax, storytellers Past Imagined, entertainers Bill Brookman and Nathaniel Bagshot and Tudor history re-enactment troupe The College of Chivalry.

There will also be traders and craftspeople, offering the chance to pick up a unique or unusual gift from a day the at Festival.
