Oxford is home to many traditions, and one of them is May Morning.
Stand in front of Magdalen Tower and admire the people who come from last night’s party and look more awake than you will feel for the whole day. Wait for crowds to assemble properly.
Wait patiently until 6am. Listen to Magdalen College Choir intoning the Hymnus Eucharisticus and madrigals, and the chiming of the tower bells. Applaud.
Follow the crowds on the High Street up to Radcliffe Camera. Leave a minute or two to ponder any signs you come across.
Divert your attention to May Morning get-ups ranging from leafy headgear to walking trees.
Upon arrival or along the way, take in any occurrences of Samba, pipers and Scottish dancers, rock music, English folk music or Morris dancing.
Finally, try to find a pub that’s only 105% full so you can have breakfast. Failing that, try and make your way home. Can’t guarantee that’s possible, though.
