There are eight Bank Holidays each year in the UK - three over the Christmas period, two at Easter, two in May and the summer Bank Holiday in May.

The first of 2015 is Thursday, January 1 - New Year’s Day.

Easter takes place over the first weekend of April, with Good Friday on Friday, April 3 and Easter Monday on Monday, April 6.
