Tim Pollard and Sally Chappell are Nottingham’s Official Robin Hood and Maid Marian
The real Sheriff of Nottingham , Cllr. Jackie Morris and I took the ‘Ice Bucket Challenge’ in Nottingham’s Old Market Square recently - a large crowd watched as I poured a bucket of ice water over her and then she returned the favour - but with a lot less warning! It was really cold - as you can tell!
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.
Now over 700 years old, Nottingham ‘s Goose Fair returns from Wednesday 1st to Sunday 5th October 2014 to thrill and delight city residents and visitors. The official opening is 12pm on Thursday - and I’ll be with the civic party again.

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.
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!
