Jack-in-the-Green 2022 – Update!

Bradford on Avon Jack in the Green

I spent a wonderful morning with the Bradford on Avon Jack-in-the-Green and his attendants and even had the honour of helping to dress Jack who was resplendent with ribbons and topped with the Bradford Gudgeon. He was awoken my a number of Morris Teams and then proceeded to parade through the town. Sadly the new knee meant I had to wave him of into the distance so any pictures of the days events would be very gratefully received.

It’s proving to be a great year for the Traditional Jack in the Green and I’m extremely happy to report that the following nineteen Jacks have appeared this year:

The Bluebell Hill (Rochester Sweeps Festival) Jack-in-the-Green
The Fowler’s Troop (Deptford) Jack-in-the-Green
The Oxford Jack in the Green
The Deadhorse Morris Jack-in-the-Green
The Hammersmith Jack-in-the-Green
The Guildford (Pilgrims Morris) Jack-in-the-Green (Guildford Bush)
The Bovey Tracey Jack-in-the-Green
The Highworth Jack-in-the-Green
Evercreech Jack in the Green
Winchcombe Jack-in-the-Green
Boss Morris Jacky-in-the-Green
Stratford upon Avon (Shakespeare’s Morris) Jack-in-the-Green
Whitstable Jack-in-the-Green
The Hastings Traditional Jack in the Green
The Bristol Jack-in-the-Green
The Knutsford Jack-in-the-Green

The Bradford on Avon Jack-in-the-Green
The Yaxley Jack-in-the-Green
The Chagford Jack-in-the-Green

I can also confirm that The Clun Green Man was sighted and defeated the Ice Queen
and The Lions Part Green Man was seen at Hastings
as was The Islington Milk Maid’s Garland

Any more pictures of any of these would be most appreciated.
