When is Father's Day 2022 in the UK?

This year Father's Day falls on Sunday, June 19, when families celebrate fathers, grandfathers, and other paternal figures in our lives. 

The day originated from a tragic story, as it was created to mark the deaths of over 300 men in West Virginia after a mining accident. 

But it has since become a day to celebrate and show thanks to the father figures in life.
