Residents of Warwick are invited to attend the Autumn Court Leet Meeting

on October 26th at 7.00pm in The Ballroom at the Court House, Jury Street, Warwick.

If you have any concerns about matters in Warwick which you feel are amiss, please present them to this court for their consideration to be taken to the Lord of the Leet who is the Mayor of Warwick.


What is the Court Leet?

Historically the Courts Leet were the bodies that acted as the upholders of Law and Order throughout England from the Middle Ages until the legal system as we know it today came into force in 1947.

The Warwick Court Leet is one of the few left in the country and continues today. One of the courts main duties is to receive ‘Presentments’ from residents of the town. Presentments are matters that resident/s feel are amiss and need rectifying, or matters which could benefit the town and/or townspeople. If these are accepted by the Court, the Steward will submit them to the relevant local authority i.e. Town, District or County Council, and they are legally obliged to respond to the Court.

There are four Courts that take place annually of which the Spring and Autumn Courts are open to members of the public. This is a chance for the public to see the tradition and regalia of this historical court that is a living history of a way of managing the town, and to raise any issues/matters within Warwick.

If you wish to make a presentment to this Autumns Court meeting please click here to fill in an online form or download a printable copy.

New Beer Festival Venue for Summer 2019. A great hit with Visitors.

The Court Leet annual summer beer, cider and music festival took place over July the 19th and 20th at a new venue. For the first time the event occupied Pagaent Gardens, behind the Court House in the town centre.

This proved a great success with around 45 beers, 15 ciders a Prosecco bar and live music making for a great atmosphere on the Friday and Saturday.

Despite a torrential downpour on the Friday evening, eager beer drinkers flocked to the new venue helping to raise money which the Court distributes via grants to local charities and good causes.

I'm busy working on my blog posts. Watch this space!
