Thursday 11th April 2019 – Visit to the Old Bailey, Royal Courts of Justice and Lincolns Inn

Meet our guide Tim, outside the Royal Courts of Justice in the Strand WC2, at 10.45am for 11.00am start.

We will be divided into three groups to attend the Criminal Appeals being heard.  Following this, we head to Lincolns Inn, where the barristers work. We will have a talk about their role.

Then onto the Old Bailey, perhaps the most famous of all Criminal Courts. Here we learn of its history and current role. We will receive listings of the cases being heard that day and can decide which trial/hearing we wish to attend. You may also move between the Courts. We are only allowed in the Public Gallery for security reasons. The Hearings are in the afternoon.

We will break for lunch around 12.45pm. Suggested venue “The Viaduct Tavern” opposite the Old Bailey. The Landlord will reserve an area for us for refreshments. Leaving the pub at about 2.00pm to return to the Old Bailey, as the Courts then open to attend the trials/hearings.  Court finishes at about 4.15pm.

There is an option then to return to “The Viaduct Tavern” where the staff will show us the cells of the former Newgate Prison. Please note, they are too busy at lunch time to do this then.

I have had a couple of cancellations, so if any Member wishes to go please see me at the March Meeting or contact me. Cost is £10.00 per head.
