Cow horns will sound and grown men wearing bells and baldrics will dance on a roundabout to welcome the merriest month.

Members of the King's Morris perform traditional dances on Knight's Hill roundabout, on the outskirts of King's Lynn, to celebrate the beginning of May.

They'll be throwing some shapes at the crack of Dawn on Monday, May 1. After that, they'll parade through town with the May Day Garland.

If you don't fancy a 5am start, you can catch them at more civilised hours over the next couple of weekends, when they'll be setting off on a mini tour.

They'll be performing on Easter Monday, April 17, at the Rose and Crown, Snettisham (11.30am); Norfolk Lavender, Heacham (12.30pm) and the Lifeboat Inn, at Thornham (2pm).
