2016

Monday May 2
Whitstable Jack the Green is a revival of the old May custom, organised by the Oyster Morris side and the highlight of their calendar. It’s one of the longest established revivals of this type, dating back the the mid 1970s. Jack is a greenery-covered man like a giant May Garland symbolising the Spirit of Spring and is accompanied by plenty of morris dancers and musicians. There is a procession through town culminating in dancing at the Castle.
