Hastings Jack or Jack in the Green, I mean.
Every year, over the early May Bank Holiday there is one almighty celebration in my my home town of Hastings. There is Folk Music, Morris Dancers, Drummers, Giants and the Jack-in-the-Green.
The Chimney Sweeps are believed to be the ones who made their garland so huge that it covered the entire man and he became know as Jack-in-the-Green.
There is a full programme of festivities occurring all over the Old Town and East Hill.
Lots of Morris Dancers from companies all over England. It was a group of Morris Dancers that revived the tradition of this festival and celebration in the early 1980s.
And finally, one of me and my smallest Dandelion beside the amazing new Winkle which was designed and made by our friend and sculptor Leigh Dyer. You can see more of his work at his site Incurva or read about Hastings' Winkle Club here.
