Cavalry charges into Sherwood Forest this weekend

The weekend Sherwood Forest National Nature Reserve sees the arrival of the amazing Cavalry of Heroes with their superb medieval jousting and horsemanship displays which started yesterday and will run through until Sunday (4th – 7th August).

The Cavalry returns to Sherwood for the first time since the last Robin Hood Festival event in 2019.

They will be performing twice daily at 11.30am and 3pm.

Also appearing at Sherwood over the next few days will be entertainers Bill Brookman and What A Palaver, as well as medieval-style musicians Crazy Dutch and Sloe Gin and storytellers Blast from the Past.

The Ferrers Household historical re-enactment group will also be at Sherwood on Saturday and Sunday with their fantastic re-creation of the era of the Wars of the Roses.

There will also be plenty of opportunity to try your hand at archery in Robin Hood’s forest, with expert traditional archery guides Reach the Core. The sessions cost just £5 for six arrows.
