Tonight it has been announced that families can come together for Christmas.

The UK Government and Devolved Administrations have tonight announced the Christmas Plans for UK lockdowns.

Between 23rd and 27th December, you can form an exclusive ‘Christmas bubble’ of up to three households 🎁

Today they have agreed that:


• Travel restrictions across the four administrations and between tiers will be lifted to provide a window for households to come together between the 23rd and 27th of December.


• Up to three households can form an exclusive ‘bubble’ to meet at home during this period. When a bubble is formed it is fixed, and must not be changed or extended further at any point.


• Each Christmas bubble can meet at home, at a place of worship or an outdoor public place, but existing, more restrictive rules on hospitality and meeting in other venues will be maintained throughout this period.

This applies across the UK.
