Join us for an all-ages theatre show guaranteed to be fun for all the family. This one-hour show is the story of Robin Hood, as told by a travelling troupe of players who arrive at Glades Gardens bringing music, comedy, and a large dollop of silliness. Enjoy high-jinks and hilarity with Jack Pudding, Tallie Longbottom, and the rest of the 'Merrie-Makers' as you travel back in time to find out what really happened at that famous archery competition in Nottingham all those years ago. Like all good family shows, this one is filled with heroes and villains. You are sure to be rooting for the lovely Maid Marian, who is fighting with her wicked stepfather Lord Knickerbocker, who wants her to marry the Sheriff of Nottingham…but Marian has her own ideas—involving our hero Robin Hood!
Taking place in the Glades Gardens this is one hilarious romp of a show you won’t want to miss. This production is sponsored by the Royal Canadian Theatre Company and Surrey Civic Theatres.
- August 12, 13 & 14 at 7:00pm
- 3:00pm matinee on August 14 only

About Glades Gardens
Glades Gardens is a beautiful 15-acre botanical oasis in South Surrey that boasts over one and a half thousand rhododendron plants, as well as other exotic flowers and shrubs. Some of the rhododendrons are more than 6 metres (20 feet) tall and are ablaze in colour in the spring. The garden also contains a superb collection of fine trees, many of which are now designated as heritage.
