Is the ‘Cursed Child’ excitement getting too much for you? Yeah, us too.


You’re going to want to go to this.

Outdoor Cinema specialists, Sneaky Experience, are taking over Lancaster Castle with a cascade of Wizards and Witchery to provide a magical experience with ‘Harry Potter’ movie screenings throughout the August bank holiday weekend.

Upon entry, you’ll be greeted with your house rules, maps, and lesson timetable, before being guided to your first class: potions, charms, dark magic and herbalism – led by iconic characters. There’s also fire breathers, owl displays, house games, a stilt-walking Phoenix and a talking photo frame to keep you entertained.

Take a trip to the Diagonal Avenue Market where there are opportunities to carve your own wand, feast on themed food in the Muggles café, pull up a pew at the Sneaky Cauldron Bar, or browse spellbinding mystical charms and crafts.
