THIS year's Robin Hood Festival, in Sherwood Forest, will run from Wednesday August 10 until Sunday August 14.
It is the 27th time the event has been staged by Notts County Council
Councillor John Cottee said: "The event is the perfect day out for all the family, with costumed characters at every turn, from jugglers and jesters to medieval doctors and rat-catchers, while medieval combat displays and markets stalls recreate the atmosphere of Robin's Sherwood Forest."
Jousting contests between Robin Hood and the Sheriff of Nottingham will take place on Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday afternoons near the Edwinstowe cricket ground.
Visitors can also watch a falconry display on the Wednesday and Sunday.
Activities will run from 11am to 4pm each day.
Admission is free, with car parking at £5 a day. A small charge is made for some events.
