Legal eagles join city’s robin trail

Gateley Plc is the latest sponsor of Hoodwinked, the world-class sculpture trail coming to Nottingham this summer. The company will sponsor a unique robin sculpture, designed and decorated by an artist, as part of the free city centre trail.

Gateley Plc is the legal business of law-led professional services group Gateley. Its Nottingham office is at Park View House on The Ropewalk.

Andy Matthews, Real Estate partner and head of Gateley Plc’s Nottingham office, said:

“Hoodwinked is a great initiative which will attract many visitors to the region; families and art fans alike. We’ve seen the success of other Wild in Art sculpture trails in different towns and cities and I’m delighted that Nottingham is now hosting its own to support Nottinghamshire Hospice. We think it’s important to get involved in initiatives that support the communities in which we work and so we’re proud to be sponsoring such a creative and community spirited event. I look forward to seeing our robin sculpture soon!”

Twist on the tale

The Hoodwinked trail will run in the city centre from 7 July to 30 September. It’s a twist on the tale of Robin Hood, transforming Nottingham’s iconic outlaw into the form of robins, each one uniquely designed and decorated by artists.

There will be around 30 sculptures on the trail, each sponsored by a business. The sculptures will be auctioned in October 2018 to raise money for Nottinghamshire Hospice.


Gateley Plc’s support for Hoodwinked has been welcomed by Councillor Dave Trimble, Nottingham City Council’s Portfolio Holder for Leisure and Culture. He said:

“Hoodwinked will be a great boost for Nottingham, attracting thousands of tourists and encouraging residents to take a fun fresh look at their own city. We are delighted that Gateley Plc has joined the growing list of sponsors who are supporting this great event and we look forward to working with them over the coming months.”
