It's actually on Friday 8th to coincide with 75th anniversary of VE day.

OOOOH !!!! Shocked

Good info', that man  Thumbs up.....Just to check.....Is Friday 8th actually swapping with the May B/H, or is an extra ?

Thanks - Phil Smiley

Yeah it's a swap rather than an extra. There were meant to be a load of celebrations and events over the VE Day weekend so was to give more time for that, but obviously they've been put in hold now.

Caused a bit of chaos though for all the calendar and diary printers who had printed before the change was announced!

You still get overtime, Mark ?.....I thought 'they'd' re-jigged things so overtime was a thing of the past.

To spread them out a bit maybe, in the spring we have 1 Customary and 3 bank holidays  (customary hols are Good Friday, Christmas Day and Boxing Day except in Scotland) and if had been on the 4th we would have had 3 in 3 weeks.

You are overlooking Easter Monday.  They have decoupled Spring Bank Holiday from the original Whitsun.  It would make sense for them to rethink the whole annual schedule but that might be seen as a step too far.  What would one otherwise want to celebrate?

The move of the May Day Holiday is the same as 1995 for the 50th Anniversary.  A shock to the system to remember we are another 25 years on and those of us who are aging post retirement can feel the mortality!

I am of an age now where Bank Holidays and Statutory Holidays are a vague memory of the distant past.

Should I still acknowledge Miners Gala Day or just treat it as yet another day.

Would depend on the entertainment, mind you you'd probably be the only one there..

Not as much as we used to, COVID 19 has helped I have had about 100 hours extra since lockdown started .   Its no longer Built in to shifts, but had it been a bank holiday tomorrow I would have started overtime at midnight and got 6.25 hours at 2.5 x rate.  So a significant amount.  Sad

As Friday is already a day rest day for me I will get an extra days leave credited, but with nowhere to go likely this year.......

We had situations like that a while back - Regularly doing 70-80 hours a month overtime.  Now you are lucky to get a single shift.
