Hooray for summertime: The clocks go forward tonight - don't forget
Saddle up the horses, it’s officially summer.


That’s how the old saying goes.

We’ll all have an extra hour of brightness to enjoy in the evening tomorrow, as the six-monthly clock change takes place.

All watches and clocks should be set forward one hour at 1am when Daylight Saving Time officially starts. (Of course, some phones and devices do this automatically so make sure to check the settings).

We’ll officially be on summer time until the end of October (but let’s not think about that right now, okay?).
