Grab your wands, take a walk down “Diagon Alley” and find visit Spellbound: A Magical Market and Wizarding Rave that will make all your Harry Potter-loving dreams come true.
Much to Professor McGonagall’s approval, Queens Theatre will be transfigured into a mystical market, selling everything from peculiar herbs and mesmerising crystals, to enchanted artworks, jewellery, and limited edition Harry Potter inspired candles.
Borgin and Burkes has been banned from participating in this event, so all cursed dark objects will be excluded.
While Ollivanders and Weasleys’ Wizard Wheezes won’t be making an appearance, a bewitching selection of market vendors will see all your friends and family seasoned spellcasters in no time.
The market line-up includes Floyd & Frankie, Little Glow Candle Co, Hey Elsie, Jasper & Co, Our Euphoria, Frankly Gin, Spice Chariot, Aura Beads & Gem Stones, Potty Mouth, Simply Clay, Hilly Tilly Distillery, and Showblock Wines – with more to come.
The all ages market will commence from 10:30am on Saturday 25 June and is wheelchair accessible, so all witches and wizards can get involved.
