It's just three weeks to go until JITG 2019. Are you getting excited?! What better time to reveal our design for this year! Made by Leila Battison. Look out for it on posters and programmes as they start to appear around the Old Town this week.
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.
We've defrosted the hankies, and dusted down the flower crown. Preparations are underway for this year's Jack in the Green.
Put the date in your diary, this year's event is taking place from Friday 28th April to Monday 1st May.
We've got loads of music, dance and song in store for you, as well as the traditional procession on Bank Holiday Monday. Watch this space as we announce our acts, and start to et excited about this year's traditional festival!
