You know what time it is! Time for Eurovision? Well, yes, the final of Eurovision is tomorrow, so if you’re a fan, make sure you tune in, but it’s ALSO time to go over what’s happening in the next week of digital PR, 23rd-30th of May.
From World Turtle Day to National Wine Day, here are some dates you might want to take note of…
WORLD TURTLE DAY 2021 – 23rd MAY
A cute one with a good reason behind it, this awareness day was founded by the American Tortoise Rescue in 2000. The day is set up to educate people about the things they can do to protect the habits of turtles and tortoises.
As well as being a good cause to support regardless of your PR outreach, this could especially be a good opportunity for those in the pet or sustainability industries. To find out more about the upcoming day, head here.
ANNUAL OVERSEAS TRAVEL AND TOURISM 2020 – 24TH MAY
Released by ONS at 9.30AM on Monday 24th, this report will reveal data from the International Passenger Survey (IPS), which collects information from passengers as they enter or leave the UK.
Covering land, air and sea tourism, this would be a great opportunity for those in the travel and property industries.
You can find out more information about the campaign here.
NATIONAL WINE DAY 2021: 25TH MAY
Get ready for some bleary eyed Wednesday zoom calls, because National Wine Day falls on a Tuesday this year (unlucky, everyone!).
Perfect for some reactive opportunities in the hospitality, food and drink industries, this annual day celebrates all-things fermented and fragrant fruits.

SPRING BANK HOLIDAY : 30TH MAY
This one may seem a bit obvious but with two bank holidays in May and the weeks flying by, it might have crept up on you! The day off work exists because it used to align with the Christian Calendar after Whit Sunday or Penticost. Since 1971, however, it’s been held on the last Monday of the month each year.
Synonymous with sunny (or rainy, if we’re being realistic) family BBQs and trips, this is a good one to have in the calendar if you’re in most industries (and so you can plan your own time off – that’s important too!).
