Jack in the Green Festival

About

This year Hastings' traditional Jack in the Green is finally expected to be back in all its glory with a weekend of festivities. Since its revival in the 1980s the festival has become synonymous with the town of Hastings and is now one of its largest events. 

Over the weekend there will be morris dancing around the town, a traditional ceilidh and the sunrise ceremony to welcome in the dawn of summer on Sunday 1st May. Bank holiday Monday will see the Grand Procession taking place from the historic old town, through George Street and up to the West Hill, before the Jack is slain and the spirit of summer is released.

More information will be added here and to the Facebook page once events have been confirmed.


Hastings Jack in the Green is a hugely popular event so please make travel arrangements accordingly. The event coincides with the Hastings May Day motorbike run and therefore local roads and the A21 can get congested and car parking around the town is limited.
