The Legend of Robin Hood

Fri 25 Nov — Sat 14 Jan

Running Time (INCLUDING ANY INTERVALS): 2 hours 35 minutes

Info Cast & Crew Videos


Pity the impoverished people of Nottingham – their scheming Sheriff keeps relentlessly raising his taxes. Most folks have had to quit the city and move out to Sherwood Forest, as Nottingham becomes the preserve of the uber-rich with polished carriages, long leather boots and bags of gold!

Yet fear not, for a hero has emerged: Robin of Loxley! Not only does he steal from the rich and give to the poor, but he also looks fantastic in tights. Thankfully, Robin is not alone. No-nonsense Maid Marion, loud-mouthed Little Joan and puny pauper, young Rob have joined the fight.

It’s people power vs ‘the man’. Let’s just hope the little guy can save the day!

Touch Tour (6pm), Audio Described Performance Sat 14 Jan at 7pm

Relaxed Performance Sun 8 Jan at 5pm

The Relaxed Performances are intended to be SEN and dementia-friendly: sound volumes and lighting levels will be reduced to soften their impact, pyrotechnics, flashing lights, and other surprising elements are removed, and the auditorium lights will stay on during the performance. In addition to these changes, the show will begin with an introduction to the characters, explaining, in particular, any elements which may be unfamiliar to some, and there will also be a brief description of the story and events which will happen during the performance. Seats can be booked in a manner which allows groups their own space and due to the nature of the layout of the Dress Circle and Upper Circle boxes, a smaller semi-isolated space can be easily obtained. We also encourage customers to get up and move around should they feel the need to. A complimentary companion ticket is available to anyone who would be unable to attend the theatre on their own.
