Getting There

Come one, come all – witches, wizards and Muggles – for a truly spectacular celebration of Christmas in the Wizarding World at Fed Square!

We’re celebrating Christmas in the Wizarding World with a fantastic array of events, including Wizarding World trivia and costume competitions hosted by Aussie creator, writer, and commentator Dave Lee Down Under; a virtual wand workshop with Paul Harris, the wand combat choreographer who worked on the Harry Potter films; and a film screening of Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets up on our Big Screen to end this magical day.

There will also be exciting giveaways of official Harry Potter treats, including your very own limited-edition cup filled with popcorn. If that isn’t enough to excite you, there will also be the opportunity to build and take home a LEGO Build your Own Hogwarts™ Castle.

Grab your wands (and your camera – there’ll be plenty of photo opps!) and dress up in your favourite Wizarding World-inspired costumes – there are some amazing prizes to be won for Best Dressed Individual, Best Dressed Couple and Best Group Effort. This is one not to be missed!

Presented in partnership with Warner Bros. Discovery.
