Remember to put your clocks forward an hour tonight (Saturday) before you go to bed as British Summer Time begins on Sunday, March 30.
* In spring, the clocks go forward, losing an hour – at 1am GMT the UK moves to 2am BST.
* In autumn, the clocks fall back, giving an extra hour – at 2am BST the UK moves to 1am GMT.
So when exactly do the clocks change tonight?
British Summer Time (BST) will start in the early hours of Sunday, March 30.
Clocks should be put forward 60 minutes at 1am as the UK moves out of Greenwich Mean Time (GMT).
This means losing an hour in bed on Mother’s Day.
As a result of the change, there will be more daylight in the evenings.
BST traditionally starts on the last Sunday in March and ends on the final Sunday in October.
Clocks will go back an hour on Sunday, October 26 when BST ends and the country reverts to GMT.
And when do the clocks go forward and back in 2015?
The daylight saving times for next year are Sunday, March 29 and Sunday, October 25.
Clocks will spring forward on March 29 and fall back on October 25.
