Explanations

In 2020 the May Early Bank Holiday is on the May 8th  instead of May 4th.

 

Why is May Day bank holiday changed?

 Normally, May Day takes place on the first Monday in May, marking the start of spring. Next year, however, it’ll be shifted back to Friday 8 May 2020 to coincide with the 75th anniversary of VE Day.

 

This is to provide the opportunity for people to have a day   off to commemorate VE Day, or Victory in Europe Day. VE Day marks the day towards the end of World War Two when fighting against Nazi Germany came to an end in Europe.
