A Fireside Folktales Performance
(c. 50 minutes, 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.
