The historic relationship between Robin Hood and the Sheriff of Nottingham has always been frosty but at midday on Tuesday 2nd September in Nottingham’s Old Market Square it will turn positively icy!
Nottingham’s Official Robin Hood, Tim Pollard, has challenged the real Sheriff of Nottingham, Councillor Jackie Morris to ‘The Ice Bucket Challenge’, an
internet charity challenge sweeping the world.
Standing in the Beach currently in the middle of her city the Sheriff will see if she can withstand Robin pouring a bucket full of ice water over her – and then
if Robin can stand the same when she returns the favour to him!
The challenge is due to be filmed and placed on the internet and both Robin and the Sheriff hope that the attempt will raise a significant amount of money for
research into Motor Neuron Disease.
So come along and support them and see a sight you’ll never, ever see again – the real Sheriff of Nottingham and the City’s official Robin Hood making a splash as their heated conflict turns into a real cold war!
Tim and Sal have been Nottingham’s Official Robin and Marian for nearly ten years.
Tim began his full time outlawry over twenty one years ago working at medieval banquets and then with the city council for all their tourism, promotions and other civic events including the city’s annual Robin Hood Pageant, parades, Royal and Olympic visits and regularly at special events and tours at Nottingham Castle.
Sal became Maid Marian about eight years ago (when she’s not teaching genetics at Nottingham University!) and since then we’ve also become a very happy couple - and parents in real life!
Meet Robin Hood and hear fun tales of action and adventure at Nottingham Castle this Summer!
