Robin Hood and the Babes in the Wood
12-14 and 18-20 January 2018.

Join Robin Hood and his Merry Men as they search the forest to rescue the Babes from the evil Sheriff of Nottingham.

Nurse Norah the pantomime dame doubles as their school teacher. Her lessons are sure to be much more fun than any class you've been in.

Together with Maid Marian and a large supporting cast and chorus, this will be another colourful and spectacular show for all the family to look forward to. You can be one of Robin's Gang too.

The leaflet is available for download here and you can see photos from our 2009 show here

New members are welcome for Robin Hood and the Babes in the Wood.
Adults (16+): See Membership information

The show also requires two pairs of children, probably aged 8-12, to play the children who are the central characters in the story, with each of them appearing in half of the performances. These are open auditions, but require advance registration.

About the Theatre

The Spotlight Theatre has a comfortable auditorium seating nearly 500. Formerly Broxbourne Civic Hall, you'll find it beside the car park near the junction of Hoddesdon High Street and Cock Lane.

It's right on the doorstep from Cheshunt, Cuffley, Goffs Oak, Waltham Abbey, Waltham Cross and Wormley, close to Enfield, Hertford, Chingford, Epping,North London and Harlow and within reasonable travelling distance of Hertfordshire towns such as Stevenage, Ware, Welwyn Garden City, St Albans and Bishops Stortford.

Terrace seats are fully tiered and there is a large licensed bar which opens one hour before evening performances. To avoid the interval rush, you are recommended to order interval drinks from the bar before the show starts.

Travel Information

Travelling North from Broxbourne traffic lights, look for the Police Station on the left and the theatre's approach road (very short length of dual carriageway) which is next after the police station and arts centre/museum. 
Travelling South
from Hoddesdon Town Centre, turn right at the Cock Lane roundabout and left before the car park.

See this town centre plan, or if travelling from further afield, see this wider map view.

By public transport: Arriva bus service 310 passes the entrance. Alight at Hoddesdon Police Station.
You can use this
journey planner (filling in destination as EN11 8BE) to find complete routes by bus or train from any address in the area.
Alternatively you can see the Arriva 310
timetable. Timetables may still show the venue as Broxbourne Civic Hall which is between "Hoddesdon, Amwell St, Clock Tower" and "Broxbourne, High Road, Post Office" on the bus timetable.

Please note: the 310 bus has limited evening service. You will be able to to travel to and from all performances beginning 6.30pm or earlier, but when returning after 7.30pm performances there will be no bus for Waltham Cross. Trains continue running later, but evening trains do not stop at all stations, so you may need to arrive and depart from different stations.
