People in Gedling borough are being given the opportunity to delve into the past of one of Arnold’s oldest pubs at a talk later this month.
Local historian and author Bob Massey is hosting the talk about the history of the Robin Hood and Little John pub at the venue on February 13 from 7pm.
It’s the second talk the popular speaker has held at the pub on Church Street, with the first one proving to be a smash hit.
Mr Massey said: “There was an estimated 120 people crammed into the bar for my last talk. Several people had to leave the pub as they could not get in.”
The Robin Hood & Little John in Arnold has a rich history, dating back to the 1700’s making it one of the oldest pubs in the borough town.
In 1940 the pub was was purchased by Home Brewery, which traded from 1875 until 1996 in Daybrook. It’s now owned by the Lincoln Green Brewing Company.
