What are the dates for the summer bank holiday in 2021?
BANK HOLIDAYS provide people with a guilt-free day off that they would appreciate throughout the summer, and luckily for them, one is coming up soon. What is the date of the summer bank holiday?
This year’s summer has been a mixed bag, with extraordinary highs of 32°C followed by inches of rain falling over the UK. Storm Evert is currently sweeping through the country and will continue to bring severe weather until the end of the week. People will be looking for a day off or two regardless of the weather, and the summer bank holiday will provide just that.
The government has approved a number of bank holidays each year, with a total of eight scheduled for 2021.
National holidays such as Christmas and New Year’s Day, as well as Easter and Good Friday, are among them.
However, some are only available during certain times of the year, such as two in the spring and the August bank holiday.
The next bank holiday is on August 30, which falls at the conclusion of the month.
There are only two more bank holidays this year after that.
Christmas and Boxing Day, both of which will be substituted in 2021, are among them.
Because both events occur on a weekend in December, replacements give people the days of December 27 and 28 off.
Although it will take some time, Britons will enjoy a new holiday in 2022.
The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee will be celebrated next year, and the government has offered everyone a day off on June 3 to commemorate the occasion.
Last year, ministers announced the shift, which will result in nine bank holidays in 2022.
The Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) expressed the hope that the country will “come together” to commemorate the occasion.
Following the June spring bank holiday, people will have four days off on June 3.
On Thursday and Friday of that week, people can take the day off.
The 70th anniversary of Queen Elizabeth II’s reign will be commemorated over the long weekend.
The current Queen is the first monarch in British history to commemorate the event.
The government is planning a “blockbuster weekend of events” to commemorate the milestone.
Oliver Dowden, the Culture Secretary, said he will propose a long list of events for people “at a national and local level.”
“We can all look forward to a remarkable four-day Jubilee weekend when we will put on a stunning, once-in-a-generation event that blends the best of British ceremonial majesty with cutting edge,” he said.
