Time to get excited!

We are absolutely delighted to share the logo for this year's Jack in the Green, designed by the wonderful Terry Betson. Isn't it amazing?

Look out for it gracing our posters and programmes around town over the coming weeks!

Here they are folks. The long awaited posters and programmes for this year's Jack in the Green. They will be hitting the streets of Hastings this week. Pick up a programme from your local pub, cafe, or participating shops. 

 

You can now also find programme information right here on the Jack in the Green website, on the 'What's On?' page. We've got some fabulous acts gracing the venues around Old Town, and can't wait for the fabulous weekend to start!

We are very excited to reveal the artwork for this year's Jack in the Green! 

 

The stylised image shows Jack himself alongside Barry the Sweep. Chimney sweeps are key to the Jack in the Green celebrations, and Jack himself is thought to have originated from the sweeps' large and elaborate May Day garlands that could cover an entire man. 

 

Hastings sweeps take part in the May Queen celebrations on Sunday, and accompany the May Queen in the procession. Our sweeps, including Barry, are the genuine article. 

 

Look out for this year's artwork on the posters, programmes, and 2016 JITG merchandise.
