Bristol Jack-in-the-Green 2012

The Bristol Jack in the Green appeared from his new location just across the river from the Arnolfini at the fantastic new M Shed at Bristol Harbourside on the Morning of May 5th. He was awoken by musicians and dancers and his attendants then led him on a fabulous procession through the streets of Bristol. he arrived at Horfield on the outskirts of Bristol at 4pm where he died to release the spirit of summer. Another fantastic day with the Bristol Jack, my thanks to all involved  for keeping this wonderful event so vibrant and magical for all. Many more pictures of all the Jacks will be posted on our Flickr site over the coming weeks, you can access the Flickr site from
