Robin Hood Pageant 2013
The Robin Hood Pageant will once again take place in the historic setting of Nottingham Castle on Saturday 26 and Sunday 27 October 2013 with 1000's of people expected to enjoy and experience the life and times of our famous outlaw, Robin Hood!
During the October half term weekend, Nottingham Castle will play host to the two-day Robin Hood Pageant, re-creating an atmosphere of a time long past.
The grounds of Nottingham Castle will be transformed into a medieval village encampment complete with a range of colourful characters allowing you travel back in time to the 12th Century.
The crowds can meet Robin Hood and his Merry Men, King Richard I in his royal camp, and enjoy living history demonstrations, experience wandering minstrels and historical entertainers, and try their hand at turning lead into gold at the Alchemists laboratory.
Enjoy cheering your heroes in the amazing live jousting tournaments and enjoy combat displays in the arena. Children can try their hands at archery and jousting in the medieval sports day with team captains Robin Hood and Maid Marian.
Children can enjoy interacting with costume characters and try their hands at medieval crafts, watch falconry and practice wood carving, table weaving and fletching.
