Laurel hedges

Is there a right time to prune laurel. I need to control mine before it gets too tall, but dont want to damage the bushes



Dont worry Glyn I literally sawed through laurel bushes and took at least 10 -12 ' off them this time last year.Obviously looked a bit bare on top when finished but they send new leaf growth directly out of trunk so soon recover.Now got a new head of growth at a much better height.
