Sometimes bank holidays are moved due to falling on weekends, or because annual holidays such as Easter move to new dates. And with the new King’s coronation having taken place this year, there will unfortunately be one less bank holiday in next year’s calendar compared with 2023.

Currently the next bank holiday in England and Wales is Monday, December 25 (Christmas Day), with Boxing Day (December 26) also a bank holiday. The first bank holiday of 2024 will be New Year’s Day, Monday January 1.
