A traditional panto that features Robin Hood and his Merry Men trying to save the babes from the Sheriff. In its original (16th Century) version the babes were abandoned in the wood by their wicked uncle - and died! Pantomime soon saw them being rescued and returned to their parents and Robin Hood started to appear in mid-Victorian times.
