Event - Rattlejag Morris–May Day Sunrise (Laxton)

Rattlejag Morris will be singing and dancing to celebrate the first sunrise of summer from 5.20 am on Tuesday 1st May, hoping to witness the sun appearing magically over the fields of Laxton as it has kindly done for many of the last 30 years or so.

Everyone is very welcome to join in this unique event at the ancient, scenic remains of Laxton motte and bailey and afterwards refresh themselves with barbecued bacon or sausage butties and beer (or maybe tea!). A free event, although we ask for a small donation for the breakfast, and if you do wish to come, please wear sturdy clothing to cross the field to the castle mound. For further news, please check out our website

To make the experience more worthwhile, Stuart Rose, local Laxton farmer and historian, will follow afterwards with a Dawn Chorus Walk around the Anglo-Saxon field system, accompanied by a wildlife expert. For information and to book on this fascinating ramble see the website at or contact him directly on 01777 871702 / 07939 228353.
