Hoodwinked is a twist on the tale of Robin Hood, with our legendary outlaw transformed into a robin. There will be around 30 robin sculptures to discover throughout the city centre from 7 July to 30 September, each sponsored by a business. Each sculpture will be an identical shape but decorated individually by artists to create a unique and colourful trail. After 12 weeks on the streets, the sculptures will be auctioned to raise money for Nottinghamshire Hospice.
Mark Fletcher, Senior Office Partner at Eversheds Sutherland in Nottingham, said:
“We are one of the largest law firms in the world, with 66 offices in 32 countries, employing over 4,500 people, including more than 700 partners and 2,400 lawyers. We have always had an office in Nottingham and are very proud to participate in Hoodwinked.”
Eversheds Sutherland is one of the world’s largest corporate law firms, with a proven track record of delivering consistently high quality legal services across the globe. The company has offices in Africa, Asia, Europe, the Middle East and the United States. The Nottingham office is at Water Court on Canal Street.
Hoodwinked is led by Nottingham City Council in partnership with Wild in Art, a leading creative producer of spectacular free public art events in the UK and beyond through the creation of uniquely-painted sculptures.
Councillor Dave Trimble, Nottingham City Council Portfolio Holder for Leisure and Culture, said:
“We very much appreciate the support of Eversheds Sutherland. It speaks volumes about the success of these trails that the company are keen to participate in this new venture for Nottingham as a result of their successful involvement in Birmingham. We look forward to reaping similar benefits here in Nottingham.”
