As you can see from the posts below Jack-in-the-Green events have been sprouting up all over the country with a fantastic eight Jacks confirmed as sighted already in 2013! These are: Winchcombe, Deptford/Greenwich, Bluebell Hill/Rochester, Lands End, Oxford, Guildford, Knutsford and Bristol.

I’m just waiting for confirmation that the Highworth, Tunbridge Wells, High Wycombe and the City of London Jacks went out. I would love to hear from anyone who sighted these Jacks and would be very grateful for any pictures for our archives, please contact me at greenman@virgin.net

But there are many more to come and I would encourage anyone who hasn’t experienced the magic of Jack-in-the-Green to have a look at the events page on the main website www.thecompanyofthegreenman.co.uk to see if there is going to be a Jack near them this year.

Jacks still to come are:

Monday 6th May

Hastings Jack-in-the-Green
Whitstable Jack-in-the-Green
Ilfracombe Jack-in-the-Green

Saturday 11th May

Brentham May Day Jack-in-the-Green

Saturday 18th May

Yaxley (Cambridgeshire) Jack-in-the-Green

If anyone knows of any other Jacks I may have missed I would love to hear about them. The Beltane Bash Bash event didn’t take place again this year but the Pagan Pride Parade looks like it will take place in August. I would be grateful if anyone taking part in the parade who is aware of a Jack-in-the-Green participating would get in touch.
