Public gallery Crown Court


This may be a weird question. I was planning on going to a Birmingham crown court case for the first time and sit in the public gallery (it is my family members court date) and I have a few questions:
•what do I do? Like how do I go about entering the court room. Do I just walk in before the trial starts?
•When do I enter? I’m afraid that I may interrupt when walking in.
•Will the judge talk to me and ask who I am?
•will I need to stand up when the judge enters.
•if the judge is already seated when I enter what do I do?

Again, I apologise if this is a weird question. I’ve never done anything like this before and I’m just really nervous :/
