International
Robin Hood Day

Did you know that there will be an international celebration of Robin Hood in Nottinghamshire this month?

October 25th 2014 has been designated the day for the main event. There will be plenty to celebrate in Nottingham of course, with businesses offering Robin Hood food,  retail promotions and the landscape of the city will be awash with Sherwood Green, we have no doubt.

If you can’t get to Sherwood Forest, never fear. Why not don your green garb and visit Elvaston Country Park. There the landscape is full of trees and grassland, echoing the wild nature of the English  forest.

While you cavort with the children in the treescape, get aunties, uncles and grandparents to visit the listed formal gardens for a smoother, quieter experience.

Whatever your taste in food or drink, why not bring along a Friar Tuck picnic basket to Elvaston Castle, you can be assured of a pleasant time in the Castle setting?

Below we have listed some links to other interesting web sites and articles on International Robin Hood Day.
