All Things Green Man & The Traditional Jack-in-the-Green

Annual Events 2020 Update

I shall do my very best to keep our Annual Events Page up to date over the coming weeks and months with regards to cancellations and changes to this years events. I would be grateful for a heads up if anybody hears of any that I may miss.

Although incredibly sad it is of course completely understandable that this years May events are being cancelled.

However a few hardy souls have decided to go solo and will ensure that Jack in the Green will awake on May Morning on his own.

There are also plans for some virtual processions to go ahead (Whitstable looks to be one) and for other events to be postponed until later this year (Highworth “May Day” has a possible new date of Saturday 22nd August to be confirmed.)

I will of course be doing my best to promote and support them.
