The dates for Easter weekend change every year and can fall anytime between 22 March and 25 April. This is because, in Western Christianity, Easter Sunday is set to fall on the next full moon following the Spring Equinox.
This year Good Friday falls on 30 March 2018 with Easter Sunday falling on 1 April 2018.
