A merry makeover…

Characters from the legendary tale, Robin Hood, make up four new character buses in Nottinghamshire, in the run-up to the Robin Hood Festival in August. 

Buses on the Sherwood Arrow have been re-branded

Stagecoach East Midlands has re-branded its Sherwood Arrow route by introducing four character buses: Robin Hood, the Sheriff of Nottingham, Maid Marian and Friar Tuck.

The route, partly funded by Nottinghamshire County Council, serves rural areas between Nottingham, Ollerton, Worksop and Retford and attractions including Sherwood Forest, Rufford Park, Wheelgate Park and White Post Farm.

Says Stagecoach East Midlands MD Michelle Hargreaves: “With the area’s strong links to the legendary tale, it seemed fitting to incorporate this into the rural service.

Public launches take place in Ollerton on 26 July and Worksop on 27 July.

Stagecoach is also the official partner for the 32nd annual Robin Hood Festival at Sherwood on 1-7 August.
