This Christmas, multi-award-winning company The Wardrobe Ensemble team up with Bristol Old Vic for a fresh spin on the swashbuckling legend.

When a 21st-century kid slips through a crack in the time-space continuum, they crash into the middle of an epic fight between good and evil. It’s Sherwood Forest. The 12th century. An uneasy time of cunning thieves, dastardly villains and karaoke-singing monks. When the corrupt Sheriff of Nottingham sets in motion his vicious plan for ultimate power, it’s up to Robin Hood and the Merry Crew to pull off their toughest mission yet. Can they defeat the Sheriff before it’s too late and the forest is lost forever? 

Combining wit, warmth and daring archery, Robin Hood: Legend of the Forgotten Forest is a magical tale about taking aim at the things you believe in, shooting straight from the heart and becoming the hero you were born to be. (And it’s also about the power of responsible taxation.) 

"Shoots straight for the heart"
