OMG! It’s 2020 already. It only seems like yesterday we were celebrating the millennium, fretting about Y2K, the impending collapse of the global computer network (who remembers that?), and the doom-mongers amongst us forecasting the world would come to an abrupt end.
Well, chin up folks. Twenty years on and most of us are still here. If you are still here, and reading this, then give yourself a pat on the back. You made it! Onwards and upwards.

What do we have to look forward to in 2020? Well, tons. Tons and tons of things, so get off the couch and do something fun ? For most of us life will go on as usual. A little older, perhaps none the wiser. But most of all, make 2020 the perfect year.
Here you’ll find a comprehensive guide to upcoming public holidays in the UK. We also have specific pages for each part of the UK along with a history of how bank holidays have developed over the years, local traditions and customs so do visit the following pages for public holidays in England and Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland for an individual run down.
A date marked with an asterisk (or a *) is in lieu of, or a substitute for, the actual bank holiday should it fall on a weekend.
