The spooky spectacle of Halloween is almost upon us and it’s the time of year for the mischievous spirits of Sherwood Forest to leave curious clues along its trail through the trees.

We’re inviting brave children to lead their petrified parents and frightened families through Sherwood to the famous Major Oak, where, legend has it, Robin Hood and his Merry Men used to hide from the wicked Sheriff of Nottingham.

Using our terrifying trail sheet to solve a mission of mystery, courageous kids must track down the clues along the way to reveal a scary secret word.

And, just as Robin Hood would have wanted, there is a reward for anyone who dares to take on this chilling challenge.
