Schools across the country bow out for Easter holidays in April this year, but the exact date this happens is different depending on the school.

Not only that, but the date of Easter itself changes annually, too.

On the first Sunday following the first full moon after the spring equinox - which always falls on March 21 - Easter is celebrated, which means that the official date is likely to change on a year-by-year basis.

So before we start to feel the warmer springtime temperatures, here is everything you need to know about when Easter holiday 2022 arrives in Liverpool.
