Pens and pencils at the ready, we’re going creative this week and want you to colour our famous Nottingham outlaw like we’ve never seen him before!

Just click the link here – Robin Hood Colouring Sheet – and print it off. You can also open the file on your computer or phone using a programme like Paint and colour in that way! Don’t like our Robin template or don’t have a printer? Then draw us a picture of Robin firing an arrow from his bow!

Robin and his companions would hide out in Sherwood Forest, so maybe you want to make sure they can be camouflaged? But, did you know that Lincoln Green might not have been green!? It might have been red as it would have used a “greyne” dye that would turn cloth scarlet! Maybe a red Robin might be how you end up colouring yours in!

When you’ve completed your colouring, get someone to share it with us on social media using the hashtag #NottmHeritageHunters or email them to There will be an extra special prize for the best one and their family!

And need more colouring to do? There’s some brilliant Notts inspired ideas from NottsTV and Rawson Photography to have a try with!


What's it all about

From the caves to the palace to Brewhouse Yard, the Nottingham Castle project will transform the entire site, re-establishing it as a focal point for civic pride and creating a world-class cultural destination at the heart of a regenerated Castle Quarter.

Discover the story of Medieval Nottingham and the city’s famous outlaw or the turbulent moments of riot and rebellion in its past. Explore the visual arts and heritage crafts of our creative city in newly refurbished galleries, including our new terrace gallery for internationally renowned touring work. Investigate the trails around the Castle’s grounds or go on an underground adventure in the caves.

Join us on your Nottingham Castle adventure from February 2021.
