The Court Leet is an ancient ceremony which takes place in May every year at the Guildhall.
The ceremony is held to welcome new applicants to the Freemen’s Roll.
All successful applicants are either the son, son-in-law or grandson of a Freemen and they are officially enrolled at the ceremony by the Clerk and Llantrisant Town Trust.
During the ceremony all newly enrolled Freemen swear an oath to uphold the traditions of their forbears.
It reads: “I HAVING THIS DAY BEEN DULY ADMITTED T FREEMEN OF LLANTRISANT DO HEREBY DECLARE THAT I WILL FAITHFULLY CONDUCT MYSELF AS A FREEMAN WITH DUE HUMILITY AND WILLINGLY ABIDE BY ALL OBLIGATIONS PLACED UPON ME THEREBY”.
Following this special occasion a Court Leet Dinner is held where more than a hundred Freemen gather to celebrate their ancient traditions and unique history.
