Robin Hood and his Merry Men

It’s a popular legend and now it will be performed in the open air as Robin Hood comes to Boughton House later this month.

The family show is being presented by the Chapterhouse Theatre Company who perform Robin Hood and His Merry Men on Tuesday August 14.

Robin Hood and his band of merry men are feared by the richest of the land who travel through Sherwood Forest as they steal from the rich to give to the poor.

When the evil Sheriff of Nottingham schemes to stop the outlaws, the merry men must join with the beautiful Maid Marian to rescue Robin from the Sheriff’s evil clutches and restore peace to the forest lands

The show is inspired by folklore, myth and legend. It is a brand-new version of Robin’s notorious story and has been brought alive with a combination of traditional sword play, song, music, dance and medieval costumes.

The piece has been adapted by award winning writer Laura Turner.
