Live the legend

Take a peek at Hoodwinked, an exciting new Wild in Art public art trail on the streets of Nottingham this summer. A world-class sculpture trail transforms our great city into the playground of Robin Hood – local legend and master of disguise.

You can join in the fun from 7 July to 30 September 2018, as scores of quirky Robin sculptures take pride of place in the city. Each has been sponsored by a business and individually decorated by artists. Keep your eyes peeled for our infamous outlaw as you’ve never seen him before!

What’s it all about?

The tales tell of Robin’s cloak and dagger exploits to outwit the Sheriff of Nottingham. The Hoodwinked trail is a mischievous modern-day twist on these stories of camouflage and cunning. Hoodwinked sees him outwitting the Sheriff again. Robin is everywhere . . . and apparently nowhere. The Robins are be in plain sight but masquerading in coats of many colours. Will the Sheriff spot Robin . . . or will he be Hoodwinked?

Once the trail ends on the 30 Sept you’ll be able to see the Robins one last time at the illuminated Farewell to the Flock event at Nottinghamshire Hospice on 12-14 October.  Book your tickets now for what will be a once in a lifetime experience.
