Came home earlier to find a letter that I have to do Jury Duty, letter has ordered me to attend court, and states I must attend on Tuesday 28th of May
I really dont fancy the thought of it as u may imagine, though I do know if you dont attend you can be punished.
Kind of worried, not knowing what to expect etc, also I suffer from anxiety at the best of times.
Any advice what happens?

Most likely you will sit around in the waiting area for a few hour. Then you're told it was settled out of court and you can go home.
If it comes to actual jury selection, that's just as boring. They'll ask a bunch of questions, and dismiss people one by one. If you don't want to do it, make a lame excuse and they'll probably let you out of it.
I've been called for jury duty quite a few times and never had to actually serve. Then I started ignoring the letters when they came.

Pray that you never get picked for a court case and you'll be out of there before the end of the day. No amount of an excuse is going to prevent you from doing anything because they will force you to be assigned to any case if you don't pick a case. Seriously pray that they don't have any cases.
I've only been called once. Basically I just showed up, sat around for a few hours, they came and told us the settled and gave us some paperwork saying we can't get called again for a while. Apparently that's pretty common. Most of the time you get called you won't ever sit on an actual jury.
