Stay in the loop this Christmas and receive the latest news and special deals!
We’re celebrating Christmas in the Wizarding World with a special live performance from the cast of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, a virtual wand workshop with wand combat choreographer, Paul Harris, who worked on the Harry Potter films, and a free film screening of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone up on our Big Screen.
There will also be free ice-cream available next to the Main Stage prior to the screening, if you use codeword ‘BIRTHDAY’ – as it’s the 20th anniversary of the film’s release!
So, 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 and Best Group Effort. This is one not to be missed!
Presented in partnership with Warner Bros. Consumer Products, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child and Roadshow Films.
All your favourite pieces from the Harry Potter film scores will be bursting forth from our speakers at Fed Square from 4pm, so it’s time to get in the Wizarding World spirit! There’ll be a free Christmas in the Wizarding World photo opp, and from 4.30pm we’ll have free ice-cream giveaways by the Main Stage (limited numbers – so get there quick-smart!). Use the codeword ‘BIRTHDAY’ to get your freebie.
Be sure to rally promptly at 5pm, as Pia Miranda – actor and massive Harry Potter fan – will welcome you to Fed Square to commence the celebrations on the Main Stage. She’ll also be on the lookout for Best Dressed Individual and Best Group Effort to give away some pretty special prizes, so be sure to dress in your finest Wizarding World-inspired attire!
As part of the celebrations for the 20th anniversary of the release of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, head down to Fed Square to see the cast of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child perform!
