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.
