Change of date and day to Early May Bank Holiday

Change of date and day to Early May Bank Holiday

Following the recent announcement, please note that next year's early May Bank Holiday will be moved back by four days for the whole of the UK to coincide with the 75th anniversary of VE Day.  The early May Bank Holiday will now take place on Friday 8 May 2020.


VE Day, or Victory in Europe Day, marks the day towards the end of World War Two when fighting against Nazi Germany came to an end in Europe.  The holiday will form part of a three-day weekend of commemorative events across the country.
