Annual Events Update 2021

The Boss Morris Jackie-in-the-Green

I have just updated the list of annual events HERE and I will continue to update it regularly. Many events have now been confirmed as cancelled for another year and others are still TBC. Hopefully a small number of Jacks will still appear in one form or another as they did last year and details will be released over the coming weeks..

Already confirmed as an online events is:

The Hastings Traditional Jack-in-the-Green

The Hastings Jack in the Green will appear in 2021 as part of an incredible three day online event spanning Friday 30th April – Monday 3rd May – I highly recommend this, last years event was wonderful and gave a great insight into the Jack and his followers as well as all the hard work that goes into the events in Hastings each year.

Please do get in touch if you are an organiser or follower of a Jack and I will ensure that I promote your event within these pages.

If you are new to these pages and are wondering just what on earth a Jack in the Green is then your whistle stop tour of the history of the Traditional Jack in the Green can be found right HERE.
