Celebrate Robin Hood at the ancestral home of his arch enemy – the Sheriff of Nottingham!
Every autumn, during the October half term weekend, Nottingham Castle plays host to the two-day Robin Hood Pageant, re-creating an atmosphere of a time long past.
The grounds of Nottingham Castle will be transformed into a medieval village encampment complete with a range of colourful characters allowing you travel back in time to the 12th Century.
Meet Robin Hood and his Merry Men, King Richard I in his royal camp, look out for living history demonstrations, experience wandering minstrels and historical entertainers, try your hand at turning lead into gold at the Alchemists laboratory or visit the medieval alehouse!
Cheer on your hero in the amazing live jousting tournaments and enjoy combat displays in the arena. Children can then try their hands at archery and jousting by participating in the medieval sports day with team captains Robin Hood and Maid Marian.
Children will love interacting with the costume characters and trying their hands at medieval crafts, see traditional skills such as falconry at practise, wood carving, table weaving and fletching, have a go at archery and much, much more!
