All Things Green Man & The Traditional Jack-in-the-Green

Annual Events 2020 update and Archive access


As almost all of the events planned for May and the early summer have now been cancelled I thought it best to remove the events list for now. Although incredibly sad it is of course completely understandable. If things do change in the next month I will of course let you all know.

A few hardy souls have decided to go solo and will ensure that Jack in the Green will awake on May Morning on his own with appropriate social distancing. I hope to share pictures and details if they do.

There are also plans for some virtual processions (Whitstable and Hastings so far) and for other events to be postponed until later this year.

I will of course be doing my best to promote and support them this year and in the years to come.

For those self isolating (or bored) I have also opened up our online archive of 45 downloadable Company of the Green Man newsletters for everyone to access completely free of charge over the coming weeks you can access them HERE.

I am getting queries about changes or cancellations to other customs and events beyond my normal remit. I would advise checking with the organisers websites and would also highly recommend Calendar Customs a guide to British calendar customs and local traditions.

I wish all our members and followers all the very best at this time.
