Jack-in-the-Green festival May 1st to May 4th 2015

Not long to go now

With only a week to go before this years celebration and with anticipation building for this years weekend, we would like to take a moment to share a few important thoughts with you.

Hastings Traditional Jack in the Green is a celebration, and has always been a fun family event. In that spirit we would ask that everyone please drink responsibly and be aware of others around you.

As Jack in the Green has grown and become more popular over the years we have made new friends, included more groups in the procession, but also faced new challenges.

One of those challenges is the anti social behaviour on the West Hill, which has never been condoned by Hastings Jack in the Green, however this has started to impact our event. We fully support the Police in a zero tolerance approach to under-age drinking and drug taking.

Most importantly we hope everyone attending continues to have a fun, great day when we can all celebrate the start of summer.
