    Councillor John Cottee urges you to make a new date with the Robin Hood Festival

    This year’s Festival, which we’ve been organising for the past 26 years, moves to the five days from Wednesday 10 – Sunday 14 August rather than its traditional first week of August.

    The Festival is the perfect day out for all the family, with costumed characters at every turn – from jugglers and jesters to medieval doctors and rat catchers, whilst medieval combat displays and markets stalls recreate the atmosphere of Robin’s Sherwood Forest.

Speak In Nottingham To Me – A Beginner’s Guide To Nottingham’s Dialect
