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

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 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.
