The Pantaloons present Robin Hood

Innovative and rip-roaring outdoor theatre for all ages.

Join utter legends Robin, Marian and the Merry Men in Sherwood Forest for a hilariously adventurous take on the timeless tales of everyone's favourite archer.

Pernicious Prince John and the shifty Sheriff of Nottingham have hatched a plan to put a stop to Robin Hood's charitable crime spree once and for all. Can they outwit the outlaw? Or will Robin hit the target once again?

Find out in the critically-acclaimed Pantaloons' innovative take on the myth featuring live music and audience interaction.

Prepare to have your blocks busted, your rips roared and your swashes well-and-truly buckled!
