Charter of the Forest and Fracking

Sun, 05/11/2017


South Forest Centre, NG21 9JA

The 1217 Charter of the Forest re-established the rights of ordinary people to use the land for their own purposes. This guaranteed access to the land for the everyday person to gather wood for fuel, graze their animals gather berries and herbs to name but a few. 800 years later politics is moving in the opposite direction. National Government has written planning and guidance and passed legislation making it difficult to oppose companies that promote seismic testing, test drilling and eventually hydraulic fracturing.

Come and help Robin Hood and his Merry Men and Women to celebrate the anniversary of the Charter of the Forest with songs, performance and speakers. Come dressed as your favourite character (optional) from the myths and legends of Robin Hood. Celebrate the past, present and future of the amazing, world-renowned Sherwood Forest. There will also be a walk to the Major Oak and back, and presentations and discussions indoors. Book a free ticket online:
