Bring a chair, blanket and join us in Aberystwyth Castle as the sunsets by watching our very own Taron Egerton. A war-hardened Crusader and a Moorish commander mount an audacious revolt against the corrupt English crown in a thrilling action-adventure. Packed with gritty battlefield exploits, mind-blowing fight choreography, and a timeless romance, ROBIN HOOD is a never before seen story of how Robin Hood became the icon and legend as we know him today.
