The Deptford Jack in the Green really will be in Deptford on May Day 2013.
Some years the figure surrounded by musicians has been seen upstream in Borough Market.
On Wednesday 1 May the Jack will leave the Dog & Bell in Princes Street in Deptford at 12 noon.
The Thames Path passes the door.
Dressing the Jack takes place at the Dog & Bell the night before and on Wednesday the pub will open at 11am.
This year’s programme has been published on the Fowlers Troop website.
