When to prune a fig tree

I have a large, old, neglected fig tree in a walled garden.  I am unsure as to when is the best time to prune it - advice seems to vary from "by Christmas at the latest" to "early spring" to "anytime"!  I understand they are one of the trees which is liable to severe bleeding if pruned at the wrong time of year.  I am in the South West so the climate is not so severe.
