It's that time of year where we're gleefully unwrapping next year's calendars and pinning down those all important dates. So here's the most important, not to be missed, weekend of the year. 

Hastings Traditional Jack in the Green will be taking place between Friday 4th May and Monday 7th May 2018. 

The weekend will contain the usual wonderful assortment of Morris dancing displays, concerts, ceilidhs, and of course the big event on the Monday. We're working hard to pull together some great bands and groups for a weekend of springtime fun. 

There will also be the usual dancing up of the dawn on Tuesday 1st May, a surprisingly magical event guaranteed to truly welcome in the summer. 

To find out how long you have to wait, here's a countdown!
