Although this gentleman looks like he is witnessing a fight it is actually The Peterborough Morris Dancers welcoming in the summer at sunrise on May Day.

Although summer does not officially begin until June morris dancers ply their trade on May Day (May 1st) with a variety of traditional morris dances.

The Old Custom House on the bank of the River Nene in Peterborough is where the Peterborough Morris dancers greeted the sunrise, although the poor weather conditions meant is was very well hidden behind clouds.
