Aylsham Town Hall to host fun Robin Hood pantomime
- Credit: Archant
Medieval merry making is coming to Aylsham as the town's players bring the legend of people's hero Robin Hood to the stage tonight.
The pantomime is set in Ye olde Baylsham Town.
It features the wicked Sheriff of Porwich who is the scourge of Baylsham and Smarsham Village as he demands unreasonable taxes from the poor townsfolk.
As the lovely Lady Marian arrives with her aunt and chaperone Elenor Fitzwater, the Sheriff is smitten and will stop at nothing to make her his bride - even if it does include help from his oddball assistants!
Can our hero Robin of Trickling Woods save Marian from a life of doom at Nitteringham Castle?
The answer will unfold at the town hall as Robin's adventures are woven into a show packed with fun, musical entertainment with added sparkle from the Sutton School of Dance.
The show runs from tonight, Thursday February 19, to Saturday February 21 at Aylsham Town Hall.
