Scottish people will have their chance to be part of a jury for a “live murder trial”.

The Murder Trial Live experience is coming to Glasgow from May 17 to May 19, and will offer people an insight into the British legal system, where guests can join a jury of 12 to determine the outcome of a criminal trial reconstruction.

Guests will meet defendant Jack Brewer, who the prosecution believe brutally murdered more than 20 people – even consuming part of the victims’ flesh in the process.

Forensic and post-mortem evidence suggests that Brewer carefully plotted, abducted and murdered his victims in cold blood.

‘The Jury’ will be asked to consider the evidence set out, hear the examination and cross examination produced by real barristers, before hearing from the defendant himself, where they will retire before delivering the verdict.

Taking place in an inflatable courtroom arena, the experience will feature street food vendors and a prosecco and gin bar.

The experience first toured the UK in 2018, returning again in 2020, shortly before the former production company stopped trading due to the pandemic.

The courtroom, dubbed the Crown Court Arena, will be located at Cartha Queens Park Rugby Football Club, in Glasgow’s South Side.

Tickets available here.
