Crown Courts, magistrates’ courts, County and Family Courts, the Royal Courts of Justice and the Rolls Building, and tribunals will close over the Christmas period, although some emergency courts may operate over the holiday on these days. Please check before travelling. See Find a court or tribunal for details.
Any hearings that do take place over the Christmas break will either take place in person, via video or telephone. Your hearing notice will confirm this if your hearing is taking place. See our full information on attending a hearing during the coronavirus pandemic.
