2020 UK Bank Holidays, Patron Saints Days and Notable Dates

2020 UK Bank Holidays and other notable dates for 2020 are shown below. All of these dates appear by default on Tinstar’s year planners. You can also find out how dates such as Easter are worked out. One notable change for 2020 is the move of the early May bank holiday from a Monday to a Friday (8th). This is to commemorate the 75th anniversary of VE Day. And to make things a little more interesting, 2020 is a leap year – thus the addition of February 29th.
