Celebrate May Morning in Oxford

May Morning in Oxford is a traditional celebration of the coming of Spring and brings together Oxford’s communities to enjoy dancing, singing and revelry from around the city.  The celebrations start at 6am with the choristers of Magdalen College choir singing Hymnus Eucharisticus from the Great Tower. Magdalen Bridge will be open to pedestrians and closed to traffic on May Morning to enable everyone to enjoy the singing in comfort and safety. The bridge will re-open to traffic between 8.30 and 9am.

There will also be May Day events and activities taking place across the city with Radcliffe Square, Catte Street and Broad Street being particular 'hot-spots' of activity. There will be lots of folk music, Morris dancing and lots of places to grab an early breakfast!!

May Morning is led by the people of Oxford and is about everyone joining in the fun.  Let us know what you are planning and we will pass it on….
