For many, attending court can be an intimidating experience, whether this is as a witness, defendant, party, or juror. The team at Bradford Combined Court is setting out to make that a thing of the past with an open day on Saturday 13th May 2023.
The day’s events will run from 10.00-16.00 and are set to include tours of the building, including Courtrooms and cells, mock trials and displays from the wide range of organisations which make up the justice system in West Yorkshire.
Many of the agencies suppor9ng, assis9ng and advising members of the public who have cause to use the Courts will also be on hand to discuss their work, including the Probation Service, drug and alcohol agencies and those involved with issues of domes9c
violence and children affected by the Law.
The open day will be supported by West Yorkshire Police and Bradford Police Museum, providing insight into policing now and throughout history. They will provide vehicles, equipment demonstrations and interactive displays. His Honour Judge Jonathan Rose
said: "The people of Bradford and the surrounding areas may interact with the law in a range of ways from contesting a speeding ticket to finalising an adoption. "It is important that the community we serve feels a level of ownership and engagement in the
way the law is applied in Bradford however they may come to be in one of our courtrooms." To book a free ticket, visit eventbrite.co.uk. We hope that you will join us and also share this link with all your contacts.
