Nottingham City Council

To help bring merriment to the streets of Nottingham with a unique world-class sculpture trail in summer 2018, we’re working with Nottingham City Council and Nottinghamshire Hospice. Hoodwinked: A Twist on the Tale features a bespoke sculpture – a quirky representation of Robin Hood, Nottingham’s local legend and master of disguise.

The Learning Programme, Robin’s Tales, complements the event with a series of BookBenches created by local schools. The progamme, supported by Boots UK, offers novel literacy and art activities that brings the Robin Hood legend to life for thousands of children across the city.

“Hoodwinked will be unmissable a celebration of our iconic outlaw as we’ve never seen him before. Anticipation is already building, with businesses snapping up opportunities to be part of this unique citywide festival of fun. I can’t wait to see the smiles on the faces of people exploring our city and meeting the tourists who are enticed to join in.”
