Despite the fact that we now associate May Day with rural celebrations, the origins of some of the traditions may lie in the street performances of 17th century London when milkmaids, chimney sweeps and children danced and sang in the hope of some extra pennies. They decorated themselves with spring flowers, ribbons and branches full with blossom. A character at first accompanying the sweeps, but later appearing in his own right, was Jack-in-the-Green – a man inside a wicker-work frame, up to eight feet tall, completely covered with greenery, ribbons and other decoration. He was joined by clowns and man-ladies dancing to the fiddle and drum. Jack-in-the-Green celebrations occur annually in Hastings, East Sussex to this day. Edition of 70
