Hoodwinked is a mischievous twist on the tale of Nottingham’s iconic outlaw Robin Hood, who is known around the world. Travellers from far and wide plan to visit the trail of 33 robin sculptures, which will be unveiled in Nottingham on 7 July.
Heidi Barlow, East Midlands Airport’s Head of Marketing, says:
“Robin Hood is an international figure and, as the region’s global gateway, we’re delighted to get behind this initiative in Nottingham. We want our local towns and cities to thrive and Hoodwinked is a great way to engage communities and attract more visitors. The airport connects people to destinations worldwide and our support of this unique sculpture trail will help people explore what’s on their doorstep.”
East Midlands Airport welcomes almost five million passengers each year and serves more than 80 leisure and business destinations with airlines including Ryanair, Jet2, Tui, Thomas Cook, bmi regional and Flybe. It connects passengers to Florida, Mexico and New York, as well as favourites closer to home including the Canaries, Spain, Brussels, Berlin and Edinburgh.
Councillor Dave Trimble, Nottingham City Council’s Portfolio Holder for Leisure and Localities, says:
“We’re delighted to have East Midlands Airport on board. The Hoodwinked trail is one more great reason for people to travel to Nottingham and we look forward to welcoming many visitors to the city this summer.”
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.
