Join Robin Hood and his Merry Band for a spectacular festive heist!

Written by Chris Bush
Directed by Elin Schofield

As winter's first snow falls, there’s little Christmas cheer in Sherwood. Cupboards are bare, the nights are cold, and the cruel Sheriff of Nottingham squeezes his citizens for every penny they’re worth. But deep in the forest, in the heart of the Major Oak, legendary outlaw Robin Hood plots an audacious scheme to bring some festive joy to all.

Can Robin succeed? Will the Sheriff be defeated? Will the children of Sherwood have anything to celebrate come Christmas Day? Find out when we bring a new chapter of Robin’s adventures to our stage.

This new festive adventure is imagined by Olivier Award winner Chris Bush (Standing at the Sky’s Edge, Fantastically Great Women Who Changed the World) and directed by UK Theatre Award winner Elin Schofield (Rock, Paper Scissors). Featuring members of our talented Rose Youth Theatre alongside a professional cast, the Rose continues its much loved Christmas tradition in 2024.
