From Sherwood Forest to Nottingham Playhouse, Robin Hood and the evil Sheriff of Nottingham lit up our Panto stage in 2018.

The ultimate pantomime villain, the Sheriff hatches a wicked plan to get rid of his niece and nephew, the Babes in the Wood, and claim their fortune. It’s down to Robin Hood to save the day and stop the Sheriff, with a little help from his Merry Men and Maid Marian.

Enjoy plenty of songs, dance, laughter and sumptuous costumes in our traditional family-friendly panto by Kenneth Alan Taylor.

Come and join in with a festive fix of slapstick comedy, boos and hisses, and all-round silliness – with the addition of good old Nottingham folklore.


We provide British Sign Language Interpretation, Captioning and Audio Description for this production, as well as a Relaxed Performance and a Dementia-friendly performance.

Everyone is welcome to attend accessible performances, customers experience the full show including the accessible services.
