Witness for the Prosecution

Witness for the Prosecution


LONDON COUNTY HALL AND CHAMBER

Witness for the Prosecution will be staged in the unique setting of the Chamber inside London County Hall. The Chamber at County Hall is a hidden jewel at the centre of one of London’s landmarks.

Previously used as a council chamber for debating, the chamber has been brought back to life as a courtroom for this very special event.

The Chamber features 210 stalls-style seats with excellent sightlines and generous legroom, and upstairs three Public Galleries with upholstered bench seating and a range of views.

The immersive experience begins as the audience enters through the original grand entrance on Belvedere Road, up a sweeping staircase, through huge wooden doors and into the Chamber, where they take their seats at the heart of a courtroom drama. As the judge presides over witness testimonies and QC cross-examinations, the audience are invited to consider the case before them.
