Things to do in Nottinghamshire: 13 – 20 July

Robin Hood April

Here is our top pick of things to do in Nottinghamshire this weekend and beyond, including a festival to celebrate art, craft and photography.

The Adventures of Robin Hood

Wollaton Hall

Thursday 19 July


Prices vary

Wollaton Hall and Deer Park is a spectacular Elizabethan mansion and park set in the heart of Nottingham. Once again there will be outdoor theatre performances in the splendid grounds surrounding the house.

Enjoy The Adventures of Robin Hood on Thursday, or another performance throughout the summer.


Various venues

Saturday 7 July – Sunday 30 September

Robin Hood will bring merriment to the streets this summer through a unique world-class sculpture trail. Scores of quirky Robin Hood sculptures will take pride of place in the city from July to September, creating an eye-catching trail through the city centre and neighbourhoods.

The trail will bring together businesses, professional artists, schools and the community and will boost the economic, social and cultural life of the city.  Ultimately, it will also raise awareness and funds for Nottinghamshire Hospice.

Clumber Park parkrun is a FREE weekly 5km event for runners of all standards, which takes place every Saturday in Clumber Park, approximately 4 miles south of Worksop, Nottinghamshire. It is not a race against other runners, but a 5k timed run and it can really be whatever you want it to be, whether that’s for fun or as part of a training plan.

Taking part is easy – just register before your first ever parkrun. The great thing is that you only ever need to do this once! Then just set your alarm for Saturday morning and get yourself there!
