Calling all merry boys and girls young and old of Long Preston, come hearken to stories of wolves' heads and outlaws that were Robin Hood and his bold brave band.
Be transported from Long Preston Village Hall to the legendary Sherwood forest of 800 years ago. Under the Major Oak, Robin Hood awaits you into his merry band of outlaws with Little John, WIll Sacaret and Much the Miller's Son. Be prepared to laugh out loud at his terrific tales.
The Yarnsmith is Robin’s own storyteller, he will begin to tell many a merry gest - comic tales telling of how Robin was bested by Friar Tuck and how he dealt with a greedy Abbot and the cruel and heartless Sheriff.
