Family Fun


Whether you need to unlock those last few robins to complete the trail, see the stunning sight of the whole flock together, or you just want to say goodbye, here is your only chance to see all 33 Hoodwinked Robins in one place, for the last time, before they fly away to their forever homes. You’ll also get to see two special new additions to the flock – never seen before!

The robins will come to roost at Fernleigh House and Gardens, home of Nottinghamshire Hospice, on Friday 12th October until Sunday 14th October before they fly away to be auctioned off to raise money for Nottinghamshire Hospice.

You can book an hour slot on Friday 12th, Saturday 13th or Sunday 14th October where you’ll get to see each and every Hoodwinked Robin, in the beautiful surroundings of Fernleigh House and Gardens, just outside of Nottingham City Centre.
