Jack in the Green 2016

This May Day I headed to Hastings for the annual Jack in the Green (JITG) celebrations.  Following a phase out in 1889, the JITG parade was revived in 1983 and is still going strong today. The parade takes place in the Old Town and leads up to the West Hill where Jack is slain (symbolically of course) and the spirit of Summer is released.

A few snaps from the day.
