Rattlejag performing Castle Hill at Laxton_May Day 2010.JPG May Day Sunrise and Dawn Chorus Walk

Stuck for something to do at dawn on Wednesday 1st May? Then why not join other sleep deprived revellers watching Rattlejag Morris and friends dance themselves awake in front of the first sunrise of May? You will be helping to keep the old English tradition alive - of welcoming in the summer by watching morris dancing, drinking the refreshment of your choice (beer, tea or coffee) and enjoying a barbecue breakfast (for a small donation).

If this sounds like your cup of tea (beer or coffee) the event is taking place in Laxton on Castle Hill (NG22 ONX) on Wednesday 1st May from 5.20am and all should be over just in time for work.

They will be joined on 1st May by Trentside Holmes Morris, a new Cotswold team based in Sutton-on-Trent.

If this isn't enough stimulation for the start of your Wednesday, Stuart Rose, local farmer and historian, will be starting his annual Dawn Chorus Walk around Laxton's unique Anglo-Saxon open field system, meeting up at the Dovecote Inn, Laxton (NG22 0SX) at 5.00am and making a pit stop to join in the May Day festivities with Rattlejag and friends. To access the field that the celebrations will be taking place on, locate the church as the track up to the hill is opposite, then proceed through the gateway at the bend and then northwards across the field.
