Fowlers Troop & the Deptford Jack in the Green

The Deptford Jack in the Green goes out in South East London, and sometimes the City, every May Day.


Musicians, please see links to: 

With huge thanks to Peter Kanssen for putting together these tunebooks.  

And Aaron Horlock wrote a new tune for the Deptford Jack in the Green this year, Anchor Jack.

Fowlers Troop try to maintain the styles of the original Fowlers Troop and wear clown costumes, fancy dress or Edwardian style clothes, see the photos.  If you want to join in and do not have anything like this, green people often make an appearance with other Jacks.  The one definite rule is NO distinctive morris kit, although a rag jacket would be all right.
