About us

Unlocking Warwick is a volunteer group based at the restored Court House in Jury Street, helping to bring the building back to life as a hub of community activity. (Here are some of us preparing for the recent Jane Austen Tea in the Ballroom). Would you like to Get Involved?

The Restored Court House

The Grade 1 listed Court House, built at the central cross roads after the Great Fire of Warwick, contains the Town Council chamber, the Warwickshire Yeomanry Museum, a splendid ballroom and the Information Centre welcoming visitors from around the world.

Exploring Local History

Crime and punishment; scandals; poverty, public health – help us to unlock some of the county town’s past community life by researching the archives for ‘Warwick Stories’ and bringing former court cases to life in dramatic reconstructions.

“In the Ballroom” in 2018

‘In the Ballroom’, the monthly social group with tea and a talk, has proved very popular and will continue throughout 2018 on the first Thursday of the month. (Click on the picture for more details).
