Nottingham City Council’s portfolio holder for leisure, culture and planning, Coucillor Pavlos Kotsonis, said:

“I am delighted to be able to announce the ‘Medieval Legends’ at Nottingham Castle, with the attendance of Robin Hood himself, for the bank holiday at the end of May.

“We’ve already seen with last weekend’s Coronation events and the sold-out Eurovision event that people are eager to return to the site – and we’re very keen to welcome them back with another sneak preview that is in keeping with Nottingham Castle’s medieval heritage.”

It will include the Lincolnshire medieval re-enactment society, Knights of Skirbeck, that provides a unique blend of living history and entertainment across Lincolnshire, Nottinghamshire, Norfolk and throughout the UK since 2008.

Beyond the medieval activities in the beautiful grounds, on site there will be mouth-watering food and drink options within the castle’s visitor centre & café, and the shop will even have child friendly archery sets for little ones inspired to take up a new hobby.
