The clocks go forward 1 hour at 1am on the last Sunday in March in the UK. That means that the clocks go forward this year on 31st March
This change takes us into British Summer Time (BST) or Daylight Saving Time and means there is more daylight in the evenings and less in the mornings.
Therefore the time of sunrise and sunset will shift an hour with the sun to rise an hour later (approx. 6.44am on 31st March) and to set an hour later (approx. 7.41pm on 31st March)
So don't forget to change yours this weekend!
