and cheers. Happy May Morning!
- Tradition of May Morning in Oxford dates back 500 years
- Choristers of Magdalen College choir sang Hymnus Eucharisticus from college’s Great Tower
- Lots of Morris dancing
Our people on the ground tell us May Morning is winding down.
So here are a few final words from our very own Lilley Mitchell.
I love May Morning. I've been joining in folk dancing and I've even interviewed a man dressed as a tree who was being fed water through three straws by a kind person passing by. It's been absolutely fabulous.
I am bowled over by this sartorial splendour.
BBC Radio Oxford's Lilley Mitchell told us her highlight of this morning's shenanigans.
Joining in the dancing in front of the steps of the Bodleian, this beautiful old building, with Groovy Sue and the Hurly Burley My God It's Early Band, singing the Cuckoo song and just dancing with someone I've never met before in a floral headdress.
Who doesn't look this fresh and fragrant at breakfast time?
Why the decision to leave London and move to Oxford will ALWAYS be the right one.
If you ever wanted to know what Morris Dancers on performance-enhancing drugs looked like...
(Legal note: There is absolutely no evidence any substances were taken in the making of this film. Well, maybe a leetl real ale...)
Smoke a pipe AND play the accordion?
He makes it look so easy.
Just feel the crowd's appreciation.
These fine dancers are from Eynsham and, to quote their website, have some of the most exciting and flamboyant dances in the morris tradition.
The things they can do with a pair of hankies...
BBC South Today's Sinead Carroll is also a fan of cheese... on head.
It's home to one of the world's toppest universities, so if there's ever a place to get your signs spell-checked...
Thanks to Simon Bond for showing us behind the scenes at the bell ringing earlier.
Because who doesn't love a bit of Emmental... on their head...
Any avid followers of our May Morning coverage will know interviewing Jack the Tree is a career high for the BBC's finest on the ground.
This year, Lilley Mitchell had the honour of grilling our tree of few words.
Now he might not say much, but he always cuts to the chase...
It's a good job it's not raining as predicted.
I love him.
Oxford how we love thee...
And a clarinet? Under the world-famous Hertford Bridge? At 07:30 in the morning?
Course it is.
Well for some of us, it certainly feels like it.
Last year's record has been well and truly smashed by a whopping 2,000 more people.
This, I am told, is Peggy May in a garland who is giving out blessings.
(Don't have a clue either, but it's May Morning so suspend your disbelief.)
Now anyone at ALL familiar with Oxford will tell you the place has more than its fair share of traffic woes - and it seems May Morning is no different even with the roads shut.
There's a little love for the downright craziness of it it all on social media.
they tell us they had a great time.
In the thick of it is BBC Radio Oxford's Lilley Mitchell.
She's with the party in Broad Street in the city centre and described the scene to us.
There are hundreds and hundreds of people, hugging and jigging, spilling out of the pubs, following troupes of Morris dancers down the street. It's absolutely fabulous.
Revellers rocking some seriously must-have outfits outside the world-famous Radcliffe Camera.
The neo-classical icon has never looked so good.
That's it, it's official. Oxford's May Morning is topping Twitter trends in the UK.
Here was the scene from the top of the Tower earlier.
Looking pretty relaxed, I'd say.
There revellers certainly have a spring (geddit?) in their step...
For the Bank Holiday layabouts getting up at 06:30 BST, here's what you missed.
Birds and worms, birds and worms...
We've had no reports of any jumpers so far.
In previous years students would famously undress and jump into the shallow River Cherwell from Magdalen Bridge.
But this was stopped in 2005 when 40 revellers required treatment after jumping into 2ft (60cm) deep water.
There seems to have been some kind of protest at Magdalen earlier, in an Oxford kind of way.
Anyone have any idea what this means? Answers on a postcard.
