We are delighted that this year, as we continue to mark our 120th anniversary, the Sir Harold Hood Memorial Lecture will be held in Court Number 1 at The Old Bailey, The Central Criminal Court of England and Wales.

The lecture will be given by His Honour Judge Nicholas Hilliard QC, the Recorder of London, who holds the most senior legal post at the Old Bailey. He is also the patron of Pact's court service

Guests will get the chance to hear from a panel of Pact volunteers who will share their first hand experience of the criminal justice system. 

Following the lecture, guests will be welcomed to a very special reception in the prestigious Judges Dining Room. They will also get the rare opportunity of taking part in a guided tour of the 112 year old court, personally escorted by His Honour Judge Nicholas Hilliard and his friends.
