Fans of the Harry Potter series can dust off their wands or take a trip down Diagon Alley to get a new one!
East Riding Libraries, in conjunction with Bloomsbury Children’s Books, are delighted to announce that the most magical night of the year, Harry Potter Book Night returns during the week commencing Monday, 29 January, 2018.
“This year Bloomsbury takes fans on a detour away from Hogwarts and, there being no interference from the Ministry of Magic (thank goodness), decades back in time to the story of Fantastic Beasts!” (www.theleakycauldron.org)
This year’s theme, Fantastic Beasts, will explore the weird and wonderful creatures featured in J.K Rowling’s fantasy world with activities, readings and games. Children are sure to have a fantastic time immersed within the magical stories.
Places are limited at each venue and booking is essential. Tickets are available now, and priced at £4 per child, payable at the time of booking. Tickets include a ‘Wand Permit’ to guarantee entry on the night. Fancy dress is very welcome!
The events are suitable for Key Stage 2 children in school years 3 to 6.
