Tim Pollard and Sally Chappell are Nottingham’s Official Robin Hood and Maid Marian
I recently joined forces with the real Sheriff of Nottingham, a backing choir of Traffic Wardens and some schoolchildren to sing (yes, sing) on a video for Nottingham City Council's 'School Keep Clear' campaign - it was great fun but I’m not convinced I’ll be in ‘Robin Hood: The Musical’ anytime soon!
Notts TV is the city’s brand new television station and as part of their original programming have produced a documentary series including this 30-minute episode showing us preparing for and performing our Robin Hood Plays in Nottingham’s Market Square. More details on Notts TV HERE.
The Christmas Light Switch-on in Nottingham is always a huge event with huge crowds, live TV and radio, fireworks, live music and celebrity guests in the Market Square - to say nothing of the Christmas fair, late night shopping, bars and rides, and I’ll be there again to help illuminate the start to a great Christmas!
This year the Switch-on takes place on Friday 21st November, from 5pm.

One of the real highlights of my year is the annual firewalk at Nottingham Castle organised by My Sight Nottinghamshire - Sal and I have led the barefoot walk of brave fundraisers across 5000 degree burning coals for the past six years now and it’s so brilliant we keep coming back - and you can take part too, it is utterly brilliant, fun, inspiring and I can’t recommend it enough. More details HERE.
Nottingham Castle’s annual Robin Hood Pageant is back again over the weekend of October 25/26 and this year it’s going to be even bigger, better and more exciting!
Not only will it be another two days of great family-friendly medieval fun, pageantry, spectacle and entertainment but back by popular demand on Saturday night is the late night jousting - plus lots more exciting and unique extras! I’ll see you there!
