Robin Hood

Join Robin Hood & his Merry Men for an outdoor adventure as Ely’s Open-Air Theatre returns to the Dean’s Garden, Ely Cathedral with another riotous classic which is bound to hit the bullseye this Summer!

After the success of last year’s production of Peter Pan, KD Theatre Productions are delighted to be bringing their brand-new take on this heartfelt story to the beautiful private grounds of the Dean’s Garden.

Featuring an exciting fresh script, loveable characters, and an opportunity for the audience to meet the characters after the show, this production has all the right ingredients to be entertaining for all the family against one of Ely’s most iconic landmarks as the backdrop.
