Mad Jack's Morris are based in  Hastings, East Sussex.  Founded in 1976, they are a "mixed side" with both men and  women dancers. They perform traditional morris dances from the Cotswold villages of England.

Their logo depicts Jack Fuller's Sugarloaf Folly.
In 1983, the Mad Jack's Morris revived the traditional "Jack in the Green" festival in Hastings.

The Sugar Loaf Band, which plays English Traditional music both historic and recently written, formed from within the Mad Jack's Morris in 2007.

Excerpts from Sussex Life Magazine, July 2003
Giant of a Festival -
Hastings' Jack in the Green
By Rowena Wilson

" ' Jack in the Green' is a unique Sussex event that takes place in Hastings every year. This extraordinary spectacle is now in it's 20th year and is attended by 20,000 visitors. The festival runs over three days and [culminates] in a procession to the castle". pp. 108

"Many forms of Morris dancing were evident at the festival. Having been around at least 600 years, Morris was considered an ancient custom even in Elizabethan times. Most of us will have seen leaping men in bells and ribbons waving hankies, but that is only one of the forms that was vibrantly performed on this occasion." pp. 109

"...Pauline Wilson from Northiam, was certainly one of the oldest members of any team. At eighty, she plays accordion for Mad Jack's men's Morris team from Hastings." pp. 110- 111
