Jack In The Green, Hastings
May 2022

The Jack In The Green Festival is an annual event taking place in various parts of the British seaside town of Hastings. A four day event that attracts thousands every year, it is a May Day Celebration centred around the symbolic figure of Jack In The Green. Along with Morris dancing, folk singing, ceilidhs and general traditional merriment, the festival culminates in a costumed parade around the city - often referred to as one of the most bizarre parades in Britain.
