Event description
Five actors, with all manner of musical instruments, struggle to remember Britain’s best-known folktale

About this event

This summer, a hapless troupe of actors hit the road with a calamitous new production of Robin Hood. Prepare for a riotous summer adventure fit for all the family as The Fools battle to tell their own version of the legendary tale at some of the most beautiful and historic landmarks in the UK.

Expect the full Three Inch Fools treatment - an evening packed with wildly-inventive story-telling, fast-paced drama, a host of musical instruments and many a quick costume change along the way!

★★★★★ – “The ultimate British theatrical experience” – Hastings Independent Press

Beneath the Major Oak, this inept troupe of players gather to tell the story of Britain’s best-known folktale. The only problem is: no one can quite remember the story! As each actor battles to tell their own version of the legendary tale, our hapless hero Robin must pull out even more tricks to bring his band of merry misfits together. And when the preening Prince John teams up with the scheming Sheriff of Nottingham to steal his brother’s crown, the scene is set for an adventure filled with misfired arrows, mistaken identity and mismanaged robberies. Can Robin pull his gang together in time to save his country, and live up to his name?

The Three Inch Fools are setting up their timber stage at London's historic Southwark Cathedral, for a week of theatre:

6 Sept - Romeo & Juliet

7 Sept - The Merry Wives of Windsor

9 Sept - Robin Hood

10 Sept - Robin Hood

13 Sept - Romeo & Juliet

14 September - The Merry Wives of Windsor

Organiser The Three Inch Fools

Organiser of Robin Hood at Southwark Cathedral

The Three Inch Fools are an innovative touring theatre company acclaimed for their fast-paced and musically driven approach to theatre.

We have built a reputation for staging bold and vibrant productions - a fast-paced, musically-driven style, using all sorts of different instruments, plenty of multi-roling and many a quick costume change along the way. For each production, we create a completely original musical soundtrack collaborating with composer Stephen Hyde. The Three Inch Fools soundtrack moves between folk music and world music to classical, rock, pop and opera - and everywhere in between!

Our performances take place in the open-air. With people spending more and more time indoors, we have made it our mission to reclaim the great outdoors as a cultural meeting ground for families and communities, at some of Britain’s best-loved landmarks.

We combine the best of old and new: the spirit and methods of a traditional touring troupe, with a contemporary vitality that strives to make our work accessible to an audience of all ages, so that everyone can enjoy and engage with theatre.

We spend the winter and spring months at the National Trust’s Elizabethan Eastbury Manor House in Barking, where we rehearse and work closely with the local community. Then, through the summer, we embark on a five-month tour of the country ...

 This Summer The Three Inch Fools are touring their outdoor productions of Romeo & Juliet, The Merry Wives of Windsor and Robin Hood - we're dusting off our instruments and getting back on the road! The Fools are in their seventh year of touring, having so far performed at over 150 venues and to almost 60,000 audience members.
