A Fireside Folktales Performance
(c. 1 hour, contains sword fighting and mild staged violence)

With King Richard the Lionheart absent, corruption and injustice are rife in England.  The country cries out for a champion – and in the heart of the forest, a legend stirs… 

Join Robin and his friends on a daring mission to save Sir Guy of Gisborne’s prisoners from the hangman’s noose.
