Hastings Jack in the Green

Mad Jacks Morris-Who revived the custom back in 1983

May 1st is the start of summer in this part of the world and since the revival of an old custom in 1983 by the Mad Jacks Morris dancers, the first May bank holiday has always been a day of celebration in Hastings. What is Jack in the Green I hear you ask: Well, it’s probably better if I just link to this page here rather than just copy a chunk out of it.

There has been much talk in recent times of moving the May Day bank holiday in order to spread our bank holidays out a bit more as there are a few of them in close proximity. As you can imagine this has upset many people, especially with those involved in the Jack in the Green as it would essentially mean that the event would not be able to happen. With this in mind we made an extra special effort to make sure we got to see the event this year.

So here are a few of my efforts from the day. I hope you enjoy them.
