Jack in the Green

The annual event early in the morning of Mayday (about this time yesterday, in fact), at Blue Bell Hill, of waking the character known as Jack in the Green, has this year been recorded on video and edited by Medway Council, who have kindly allowed embedding, so here it is. It's essentially two minutes of traditional English 'stuff', including Morris-style male and female dance sides.

It is interesting to note that, when I lived not all that far from where this happened, I tried to be up in time for it, year after year, but never made it despite considerable efforts...
