Unlocking Warwick

Photo of the Court House taken in 1950The Unlocking Warwick project is the main method of bringing the splendid Grade 1 listed Court House building – built after the 1694 Great Fire of Warwick – back to life with the aid of the Heritage Lottery Fund and Warwick Town Council. Officially reopened in 2014, the year Warwick celebrated its 1100th anniversary, the Court House is now the central venue for a wide range of community events.
