When is Whit Friday?

Only until the 2017 Whit Friday contests.

Whit Sunday is the Christian feast of of Pentecost, which is celebrated on the seventh Sunday after Easter. So Whitsuntide, which starts on Whit Sunday, is a itself a moveable feast. Whit Friday is the Friday following Whit Sunday, so is 8 weeks after Good Friday. Unfortunately this means that it sometimes clashes with the All England Masters at the end of May.

The next Whit Friday is  Friday 25 May, 2018 .
