The event is in line with the story of the noble thief: the sheriff of Nottingham and his entourage try to catch the criminal. Of course, all participants are dressed in costumes. The Robin Hood Festival would be incomplete without archery, which runs near Major Oak. Costumed archers in uniform compete with each other to demonstrate their skills. Anyone can try this competition. Festival guests will be able to visit an exhibition about falconry and talk to a connoisseur of alchemy as well.
