It’s no holiday for event organisers

The story in the September issue of M&IT about moving the May bank holiday 2020 to Friday 8 May shows just how out of touch the government is with the sector.

To change the day with what is effectively very short notice will no doubt cause serious issues for some event organisers and venues – many of who may not yet be aware of the change. I’m all for commemorating VE Day, but does the bank holiday have to be on the exact day?

The sector has enough to cope with because of the political turmoil without this additional headache.
