When Is The Next Bank Holiday?


A new year means a new set of bank holidays are stretching ahead of us – and the first, Good Friday, really isn't that far away (even if it might feel like it!).

This year, Good Friday falls on April 3, and kick starts the long four day Easter weekend.

After that it's downhill all the way to early May bank holiday and the spring bank holiday at the end of the same month.

Diaries at the ready, here are the bank holiday dates for 2015...
