Harry Potter IRL: Attend this school for witches and wizards in England

Jun 5 2019, 4:29 pm

If you didn’t dream of becoming a witch or a wizard while growing up, you might as well just crawl right back into the Dursley’s cupboard underneath the stairs.

An enchanting 15th-century castle in England is being transformed into a school of magic called Bothwell School of Witchcraft this summer. Running from August 8 to 11, 2019, this immersive experience strongly encourages role-playing and living your best non-Muggle life. (Voldemort not included.)

Students will be sorted into one of the School Houses, where they will eventually compete to win the House Shield. Witches and wizards will also partake in lessons and workshops such as falconry, alchemy, and witchcraft.

Throughout the four-days, students will also have the opportunity to attend a lavish banquet and ball, explore the 300-acre grounds, and interact with mythical creatures such as the elusive Minotaur.

Tickets run from £150 – £1,090, and will include access to all activities, on-site accommodation, all meals, a Custom Character write-up, as well as a rope and tie to look the part.

You can purchase a ticket here or learn more information at the event website.
