About this event

The Old Bailey is Britain’s most famous courthouse. At its heart is Court Number One, a courtroom where, since it opened its doors in 1907, the most notorious trials of spies, murderers, politicians, traitors and fraudsters have taken place, and where, also, terrible miscarriages of justice have been perpetrated.

In this talk Thomas Grant will trace how this courtroom, largely unchanged in 110 years, has witnessed the changing social and moral history of a nation.

About the speaker

Thomas Grant QC is a practising barrister and author. His books include Jeremy Hutchinson’s Case Histories and Court Number One: The Old Bailey Trials that defined Modern Britain. He is currently the Visiting Professor of Politics and Law at Gresham College.
