At 2am on Sunday 25 October British summer time (BST) comes to an end, the country puts the clocks back an hour to 1am, and we go back to observing Greenwich mean time.

The clocks going back is usually a bonanza for the entertainment and hospitality industry. If your bar shuts at 2am, by the time it rolls around, it is suddenly 1am again, and you can in theory stay open for another hour. However, under current coronavirus restrictions, everything fun has to shut at 10pm on Saturday night. If you are under tier 3 restrictions in England, mind you, there won’t have been much opportunity to go out anyway.
