When the nasty Baron abandons his two wards deep in the forests around Horncastle, can Robin Hood and his merry men find them before it’s too late?

They’ll need all the help they can get from a Fairy Godmother, a cheerful dame - and a very noisy audience!

Booing and hissing is expected, and there will also be plenty of groan-worthy gags in this traditional family pantomime to provide fun for all ages.

Babes In The Wood will run nightly from Wednesday January 29 to Saturday February 1, and then again from Wednesday February 5 to Saturday February 8.
