Main Square

Come one and 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 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.

Ice-cream and photo opps

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.
