In Oxford on May Morning, many pubs are open from sunrise, and some of the college bars are open all night. Madrigals are still sung from the roof of the tower of Magdalen College, with thousands gathering on Magdalen Bridge to listen.
Morris Dancing starts in Radcliffe Square, and continues throughout the morning at various locations around the city, slowly moving north up to North Parade by midday.
