So is Robin Hood a real person? Yes and no. What does that mean? He's a legend - a myth. Define myth, please. A story that has been told so many times it's impossible to tell if it's true anymore. A shadow creeps across the courtyard of Nottingham Castle. Someone has been stealing chickens which is a crime punishable by the loss of an ear. The Sheriff of Nottingham and his wolf are lying in wait but tonight they will get more than they bargain for...A tale that's been told a thousand times - although never quite like this - The Adventures of Robin Hood is a story about heroism and friendship, corruption and murder. There are sword fights, archery competitions, daring rescues and impossible escapes. A wild, anarchic take on an ancient story. Suitable for those ages 7 and over.
