ales of Albion - Feature Film

Over the weekend the Outlaws had an enjoyable time filming the prequel to Spirit Of Albion. Tales of Albion is based on the Horned God and our section of filming was depicting his connection with Robin Hood. Directed by Gary Andrews, the film was shot in the beautiful forests of Hampshire on a hot summers day. With the addition of the youngest member of the team, Conan Joyner impressed many with his skills with the sword at only the age of two. Gary is still working on other aspects of the film and hopes that it will be available for viewing sometime late next year.

owmen of Woodland changes their name to 'Outlaws of the Greenwood'.

We decided that as the group does more than just archery, and can be involved in other aspects of medieval life, the older name did not cover everything we did. We wanted to use the term 'Greenwood' as it is found in the earliest ballads including 'A Gest of Robyn Hode' as shown below.

Verse 14 of the First Fytte of 'A Gest of Robyn Hode'

'No more ye shall no gode yeman'

'That walketh by grene wode shawe;'

'Ne no knyght ne no squyer'

'That wol be a gode felawe'

A reimagining of the classic Robin Hood tale merges the elements of magic and medieval romance. The Sheriff of Nottingham has targeted Robin and his band of heroes dwelling within Sherwood Forest. To destroy his enemies, the Sheriff unleashes an unstoppable creature that transforms at night into Alina, a striking woman.

atest News Direct From Kip Carpenter

There is absolutely no truth that R.O.S is coming back. I have been contacted by nobody to write a script. No approach has been made either to me or to Paul Knight - the producer of the series. This is a beautiful example of Fan Fantastic Flim Flam. Sorry, but that's the truth. I would be grateful if this E could be circulated among the membership! What is true is that the BBC are going to perpetrate their ghastly version of Robin the Hoody again. Stand by to switch off.

obin of Sherwood Convention 2006

The Bowmen of Woodland made an appearance at the Legend 2006 Robin of Sherwood convention that was held in Barnby Moor, near Retford, Nottinghamshire. We had a very pleasant time talking with the fans and joining in with some of the activities like the Long Bow event. Some of the fans made costumes while others hired them for the weekend. All of them had a lot of fun. Phil Rose was a guest there, talking with the fans and participating with some of the events. However he also worked very hard with the other organisers to make the event a moment of joy for all who attended. He has since been made 'Honorary Viking of Gudvangen' which we dubbed him using Albion. The next convention in 2008 should be incredible. Hope to see you then.

ossible New Robin of Sherwood Series On Its Way.

At last Richard Carpenter is on a mission to get the next series of Robin of Sherwood into action.Originally, script writer Vanessa Greatorex had written a script for “The Reward”, as Kip had said that he had not planned to write any more for the Robin of Sherwood series. As it now turns out, Kip is on the move for his own script which is good news for all RoS fans out there. At this moment all we know is that it will be a two part series. Nothing more so far.
