Prison and Police Museum
In this museum, the history of policing is displayed through collections of uniforms, artefacts and anecdotes, which give an insight into how the profession has progressed and developed throughout history. The experience of visiting the museum is immersive, with staff dressed in period dress and incarcerated ‘prisoners’ populating the cells. Guests can experience life in a Victorian prison cell, watch some audiovisual displays and look at the old police uniforms that are on display.
The Courthouse Museum was a working courthouse until 1998, and visitors now can explore the old Jury Room, the Justices’ Retiring Room and the Court Room. Here, visitors can learn about the justice system and how it has developed through the ages, and where the traditions come from. The Court Room is adorned in the style of what it would have looked like in the 19th century, embracing the rich history of the criminal justice system.

FAKE FESTIVALS CELEBRATES 10 YEARS WITH ITS BIGGEST UK TOUR EVER
Fake Festivals returns to Harrogate for the 10th Anniversary tour
The UK’s only touring tribute festival returns to Harrogate this summer and is celebrating its 10th anniversary. All the fun kicks off at The Stray on Saturday 23rd July, with three major tribute acts and five local support bands, who will be turning up the heat this summer.
“Last year was yet another success for Fake Festivals at Harrogate, and the event was once again a sell-out. This year we are back even stronger with another fabulous line-up with something for everyone,” says Danni Saxton, licensee for Harrogate Fake Festival.
2016 will see world-class tributes to Queen, Kasabian and U2 hit the stage at The Stray, along with five lucky local support bands.
The 10th anniversary celebrations will be going on all day and night, and there will be the main bar inside the marquee, and a variety of food and entertainment stalls in the outside arena.
“It’s hard to believe that Fake Festivals started out in a small Lincolnshire village ten years ago, and now tours around the UK,” says Jez Lee, owner of Fake Festivals. “I can clearly remember the day, and never imagined it would take off like it has. I’m really proud to be able to say we are the UK’s only touring tribute festival, and that we have kept it community-led to, and not sold out to commercial pressures that a lot of festivals experience nowadays.”
Discounted early bird tickets are already on sale until 23rd June from the Fake Festivals website, www.fakefestivals.co.uk, and are priced as follows:
Young Person (10-17 years) £9.00
Family (2 Adults, 2 Young Persons) £42.00
Under 10’s are FREE
The Big Fake Festival takes place again this year at Thoresby Park in Nottinghamshire from 2nd to 4th September, where all of the twenty tribute bands will be performing. Due to this event hitting maximum capacity last summer, ticket sales have had to be limited to 3,000 for 2016, so make sure you register and grab your tickets to this end of season finale quickly. Details on how to claim your tickets are on the Fake Festivals website. If you have a ticket to Harrogate Fake Festival, just enter your ticket code when you book to receive 50% off.
Make sure you don’t miss out on the celebrations, and grab your tickets now to what will be a fantastic day of live music and entertainment for all ages.
