Thanks to Dead Horse Morris for the wonderful pictures above and below of their Jack-in-the-Green seeing in a beautiful dawn on Sunday 1st May 2016, on Whitstable Sea Front joined by the Lord Mayor of Canterbury, Cllr. Sally Waters and her escort.

I’m very grateful to everyone who has confirmed sightings and sent in some fantastic photographs of this years Jacks-in-the-Green. I’ll be posting plenty more pictures of this years Jacks in the weeks to come both here and on our Flickr Archive

It has long been my hope to be able to obtain at least one picture of every Jack that goes out across the UK each year to add to our online Flickr archive and provide a visual record of this wonderful tradition for generations to come.

I’m still trying to track down pictures of a number of Jacks from this year. If you can help and have the copyright owners permission please get in contact via the ‘Contact us’ tab at the top of this blog. Copyright of any pictures added to our archive always remains with the original photographer and pictures are only ever used with permission of the copyright owner.

  • Whitstable Jack-in-the-Green
  • Ilfracombe Jack-in-the-Green

    If you look at the bottom photo from Dead Horse Morris, you will see another Jack to the left on the hill, bending over and spreading his magic to the other trees!
