Hoodwinked 2018

13 August 2018

Visitors to Nottingham this summer will notice some additions to the City’s streets, as scores of quirky Robin sculptures take pride of place in the city. They are part of Hoodwinked, a public sculpture trail. The trail is a modern take on the legend of Robin Hood, with the outlaw outwitting the Sheriff of Nottingham in a series of disguises.

Each Robin has been sponsored by a business and individually decorated by artists. Among the artists are some NTU alumni.

Julie Vernon (BA Hons Business Studies, 1991) has produced Royal Robin Redbreast which features a stunning mosaic design. Her robin is situated at Nottingham Station
and is sponsored by Castle Rock.

Hannah Money (BA Hons Design for Film and Television, 2015) has produced the Independence robin, which is displayed in front of Nottingham Playhouse and is sponsored by Nottingham City Council. It’s design commemorates the 70th anniversary of the partition of India and Pakistan.

Visitors can join the trail by picking up a map or downloading the Hoodwinked 2018 app to find their way around all the Robins, and discover lots of interesting places along the way. Visitors can also vote for their favourite Robin on the app.

Find out more on the Hoodwinked website.

All the Hoodwinked sculptures will be auctioned at the end of the trail to raise funds for the Nottinghamshire Hospice.
