Robin Hood in the woods

Bringing the popular folklore to life, come with us on an adventure through the woods on your horse and bow and arrow at the ready!

You will become a band of merry children, creating your own hobby horse and very own bow and arrow as we ride around the woods on a scavenger hunt of fun, you will learn how to build dens and camouflage them as well creating natural obstacle course to train our ‘horses’ and a bow and arrow competition, to see who can prove they are worthy of the title of Shropshire’s very own Robin hood!
