Robin O’ The Greenwood – Friday 25th June at 6pm
Was Robin Hood a real person? Is it true he stole from the rich to give to the poor, or was that a thin excuse for relieving travellers of their purses?
Storyteller Beth Webb and folk singer Neil Eaton will delight you with an evening of traditional tales, songs, and a little bit of history. In the magnificent setting of the Bishop’s Palace, you’ll be transported back to the early 1200s ¬– to the day when an unwed great granddaughter of the King of the Scots gave birth to a baby boy, and she called him Robin. Age recommendation: 11+
The production will be held on the stunning South Lawn of the Palace Gardens, in the shadow of the romantic ruins of the Great Hall.
All shows can be booked on The Bishop’s Palace website (www.bishopspalace.org.uk) and theatre-goers should bring a picnic blanket or low-backed seating.
The performances will go ahead whatever the weather, so do dress accordingly for the Great British Summer!
