I actually went to see the Robin Hood exhibition at Nottingham Castle last year, as I was showing someone around town and we decided to pop to the castle for a visit.
(Brought the camera and all, should’ve taken photos, but I didn’t. Someone slap me, please, I deserve it.)
Now, going to a pretty small exhibition for a show you aren’t all that interested in… well, you walk around fairly quickly. If I had been a fan of the show back then, things would’ve been different. There were clothes on display – one of the outlaws had a pair of Converse on… I’m pretty sure they weren’t invented back then.
There wasn’t much to it. Some weapons, some pictures, some clothes, some info on characters, some video footage. Still plenty enough to take pictures of. And yet I didn’t.
There was also really big pictures of the characters, and I did go slightly weak at the knees seeing Guy towering over me. My reaction was thinking “woah, he’s a bit attractive and a half, inn’t he!” and I DIDN’T EVEN TAKE A PICTURE!!!
Woe is me.
At least I still have the sticker… somewhere.
If anyone DID happen to go there and take pictures, I’d love to see them.
