Robin Hood – local legend and master of disguise – will bring merriment to the streets of Nottingham this summer through a unique world-class sculpture trail. Scores of quirky Robin Hood sculptures will take pride of place in the city from July to September 2018, creating an eye-catching trail through the city centre and neighbourhoods.
The trail will bring together businesses, professional artists, schools and the community and will boost the economic, social and cultural life of the city. Ultimately, it will also raise awareness and funds for Nottinghamshire Hospice.
The trail is called Hoodwinked: a twist on the tale – a modern-day take on the traditional stories of our mischievous outlaw outwitting the Sheriff of Nottingham with skills of camouflage and cunning. Hoodwinked will see Robin trying to outwit the Sheriff again. Robin Hood will be everywhere . . . . . and apparently nowhere. The Robin Hoods will all be in plain sight but masquerading in coats of many colours. Will the Sheriff spot him . . . . . or will he be Hoodwinked? It’ll be a citywide game of hide and seek.
Some of the businesses already confirmed for the trail are Nottingham Playhouse, The Cornerhouse, Castle Rock Brewery, Harts Hotel & Restaurant, Nottingham Forest Fooball Club, intu Victoria Centre,
