You may have already realised that next year's early May bank holiday (the one that would normally be on the first Monday in May) has been moved to the Friday of the same week - that is, Friday 8th May 2020. This is a one-off move to coincide with commemorations of the 75th anniversary of VE day at the end of the Second World War.

This is just a note to clarify implications for Queen's.

  • There is a QRC1/QCC1 residential weekend which starts on the Friday evening - this will proceed as planned (as will the first year Lichfield Reader weekend, and the CBT Post-Graduate taster day on Saturday 9th).
  • Weekday students on Track 1 will have normal teaching on the Monday that would have been the bank holiday (Mon 4th).
