Each year the forest plays host to a week of fun and festivities in August, celebrating the life and legend of our most famous resident – Robin Hood.

Join in, dress-up, take part and enjoy seven days of re-enactment, song, dance, storytelling, skirmishing and adventures with the outlaws. You might even meet the legend himself, if you can follow the clues along our forest trail…

You’ll find food and drink stalls, craft stands, demonstrations, medieval music, archery lessons and plenty of activities that will immerse yourself in the legends of Sherwood. A great way to make the most of the summer holidays, the Robin Hood Festival has been loved by families and Robin fans since 1984.

There’s no need to book and entry is free – there’s just a £5 parking fee for a full day. Just look out for the daily programme of events here, a little closer to the time, or pick up your printed copy when you arrive on site.

Sherwood Country Park lies just north of Edwinstowe, two miles from Ollerton and 17 miles north of Nottingham on the A614 Nottingham-Doncaster road. The park is within an area which originally bore a Viking name “birch lund”, now known as Birklands.
