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

Annual Events 2022 – Jack’s Back!

The Hammersmith Jack-in-the-Green 2019

It’s finally that time of the year when I begin the task of updating the list of annual events that feature The Traditional Jack-in-the-Green or The Green Man throughout the UK.

The list is HERE and I will be updating it regularly. Confirmations of events are beginning to come in thick and fast and I really hope that things will get back to something like normal after the events of the last two years. You will find links to each events own websites or Facebook pages on our annual events page so that you can check details on times and locations.

Confirmed events so far are:

Hastings Traditional Jack in the Green – Friday 29th April – Monday 2nd May
Fowler’s Troop (Deptford) Jack in the Green – Sunday 1st May
Bristol Jack in the Green – Saturday 7th May
Winchcombe Jack in the Green – Sunday 1st May
Knutsford May Day – Saturday 7th May
Evercreech Jack in the Green – Sunday 1st May

Please do get in touch if you are an organiser or follower of a particular event and can confirm that it is going ahead 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.
And everything that you need to know about the modern revived Jacks can be found HERE

  2. Thank you Sarah1 That’s great news. I’ve updated the events page and edited the blog post accordingly. I had really hoped to pop along and see you all this year (it’s been far too long) but the new knee I get next Friday might not be quite ready for travelling over and cavorting with Jack by then! Please do give my best to everyone involved and pop us a few pictures if you get the chance.
