Change to May Bank Holiday 2020

Change of early May bank holiday to mark 75th anniversary of Victory in Europe (VE) Day 

You may now be aware from recent press coverage that the Government has changed the date of the early May bank holiday (May Day) in 2020 which will move from Monday 4 May to Friday 8 May to mark the 75th anniversary of VE Day.

Moving a bank holiday is achieved by a Royal Proclamation under the Banking and Financial Dealings Act 1971. This is only the second time that the early May bank holiday has been moved, the first time was in 1995 to mark the 50th anniversary of VE Day.
