BBC Radio Nottingham's breakfast host Andy Whittaker is putting together a "Robin Hood" themed version of the Big Night Out on Wednesday, 12 May 2010.

The Big Night Out aims to encourage people to enjoy Nottingham at night.

There will be free and discounted events in the city, all with a connection to the famous outlaw.

The night is to coincide with a gala screening, in Nottingham, of Ridley Scott's new Robin Hood film starring Russell Crowe and Cate Blanchett.

Join Andy Whittaker at Trinity Square 5.55pm to help launch the night and to be in the Robin Hood Big Night Out official photo.

On the night a Robin Hood themed ghost walk will take place, there will be the chance to see the real Sherriff of Nottingham's rooms and tourist attractions like Nottingham Castle will be open late.

Many of the city's restaurants will also have special offers for the Robin Hood Big Night Out.

The Robin Hood Big Night Out is one of dozens of events related to the world's most famous outlaw taking place in Nottinghamshire in May 2010. It has been proclaimed Robin Hood month by Nottingham City Council and Nottinghamshire County Council.
