Folk hero and outlaw, Robin Hood, is relocating next month – to The Queen Elizabeth Forest Park.
Forestry Commission Scotland has arranged for the award winning Walking Theatre Company to bring their production of ‘Robin Hood’ to David Marshall Lodge on Saturday 2 June.
The family play, which unfolds as you walk with the actors through the woods, will feature all the usual characters in an all- new woodland adventure.
Stephen Gillen, for the Commission’s team in Aberfoyle, said;
“It’s a great idea and one that will really excite and engage visitors of any age. You’ll encounter nasty sheriffs and evil henchmen, damsels in distress and handsome heroes – all in the battle for the Crown Jewels!
“It promises to be great afternoon fun – with a treasure trail and a poster competition as well - but there’s plenty more to do at the Lodge, too. Why not make a day of it and enjoy the fantastic new artwork on the boardwalk and take a stroll around the refurbished trails to just soak up the peace and quiet.”
The event starts at 1.00pm but places are limited so early booking is essential. There is a £5 per person charge but under-fives go free.
To book your place call the Commission’s team at David Marshall Lodge on 01877 382258.
