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.

The early May Bank Holiday, May Day, is on Monday, May 4 and the spring Bank Holiday takes place on Monday, May 25.
Then there is a three-month wait until Monday, August 31 - the summer Bank Holiday is particularly late in 2015, coming just a matter of days before many schools return for the autumn term.

Christmas 2015 falls on a Friday, meaning many workers will get another four-day weekend, with Monday, December 28 decreed a Bank Holiday in lieu of Boxing Day, which falls on the Saturday.

New year’s Day 2016 falls on a Friday, making another three-day weekend for many.
