Hoodwinked | Visit Nottinghamshire


Friday 12 October until Sunday 14 October 2018

2 BRAND NEW robins will be unveiled for the first time at the Farewell Event, so whether you want to see these, need to unlock those last few to complete the trail, see the stunning sight of the whole flock together which is illuminated at dusk, or you just want to say goodbye, here is your only chance to see all 35 Hoodwinked Robins in one place, for the last time, before they fly away to their forever homes.

The robins will come to roost at Fernleigh House and Gardens, home of Nottinghamshire Hospice, on Friday 12 October until Sunday 14 October before they fly away to be auctioned off to raise money for the Hospice's invaluable work.

Book your one hour slot now for Friday 12, Saturday 13 or Sunday 14 October where you’ll get to see each and every Hoodwinked Robin, in the beautiful surroundings of Fernleigh House and Gardens, just outside of Nottingham City Centre.
