Cheers! Castle Rock Brewery joins the flock of Hoodwinked sponsors

Local brewery Castle Rock have become a sponsor of the Hoodwinked sculpture trail of robins and are keen to see the impact of the trail on the city.

The brewery, located on Queensberry Road, has long been a part of the Nottinghamshire community with 15 bars and pubs across the city and into the county. Being part of Hoodwinked was an easy decision for them – giving them the chance to support a huge city activity and Nottinghamshire Hospice at the same time.

Lewis Townsend, Head of Marketing, said:

“Hoodwinked is a good chance for the community to support local artists, learn about the history of Nottingham and discover parts of the city we don’t always go to so we couldn’t turn down the opportunity to be involved, and with so many Castle Rock venues across the city we’re also hoping it’ll enable visitors to discover the diverse range of our pubs and bars as they refuel on their trail walks!”

Hoodwinked is an eye-catching world-class sculpture trail bringing together businesses, artists, schools and the community due to take place in Nottingham city centre over the summer.


The trail, made up of more than 30 large sculptures designed and decorated by professional artists, will run from 7 July to 30 September, after which sculptures will be auctioned to raise funds for the hospice, chosen as charity partner for the project.

Businesses across the city have sponsored the sculptures, and more than 50 Nottingham schools are taking part in ‘Robin’s Tales’, an education and learning programme to bring the Robin Hood legend to life through literacy and art activities.

Nottinghamshire Hospice is the charity partner for Hoodwinked and are beneficiaries of the profits of the project.

Hoodwinked is led by Nottingham City Council in partnership with Wild in Art which has run similar trails in other UK cities and overseas.
