The Jack in the Green Festival in Hastings is a yearly event that celebrates May Day. Drumming groups and Morris sides are up early, gathering to greet Jack in the Green. They begin the parade Maritime Museum when the Jack of the Green is brought out to take his place. The parade winds its way through the streets of Hastings, finally ending up at Hastings Castle for more Morris dancing and, finally, the banishment of winter, with Jack’s death.

Here is more information on the Jack in the Green Festival.
