The conclusion of the Walking In The Footsteps of Deptford’s Jack In The Green, was a live soundtracking to a film of a previous Jack In The Green walk. The visiting public were invited to take part, and played a huge variety of weird and wonderful percussive instruments from project leader David Aylward’s collection. We will put the footage up soon, but here are some stills for now.

David Aylward setting up his very impressive collection of percussive instruments for participants to use this afternoon. His Walking In The Footsteps Of Deptford’s Jack In The Green event kicks off at 11:30ish today, with a talk about the Jack in The Green ritual, before a 2 hour trail through the northern parts of Deptford is followed, leading back to the space. On the return, a film of a previous walk will be shown, and you will get a chance to accompany on the instruments shown above!
