Attending a Hearing

Space at our venue is limited due to the need to maintain social distancing. We advise you to book a seat specifying the date or session you wish to attend. This can be done up to 24 hours in advance of the date you wish to attend. If you turn up without a seat booking, you might be refused entry if there is no space/insufficient space.

Everyone attending the IDRC will be required to complete the IDRC’s Covid-19 declaration form.  To avoid congestion and delay on arrival, we encourage people to download this and bring it completed to reception.

Everyone attending the Brook House Inquiry regularly is asked to carry out a lateral flow test on the Sunday night or Monday morning of each week before coming to the IDRC and a further test on the Wednesday of each week. Information on how to obtain free lateral flow tests is available on the NHS Covid-19 information pages.


Our venue is accessible to wheelchair users. A hearing loop is available on request. Please contact us for more information about access requirements.

There are no refreshment facilities for members of the public on site but there are a range of cafes and food outlets nearby.
