Free Family Sunday Funday at Manchester Central Library, Manchester, 10 December 2017, free entry - Visit now

Raid your wardrobes for your finest Hogwarts threads as Central Library celebrate all things Harry Potter with an afternoon of wizarding wonder this Sunday.

A myriad of drop-in magical activities will keep both diehard and new Harry Potter fans out of trouble. Brace yourselves for live action show The Battle of the Wizards (following a mystery sighting in the library) and see if Dumbledore and Harry Potter can outsmart devious Lucius Malfoy before it’s too late.

Meet characters galore including Professor McGonagall,  Snape, Lucius Malfoy, Dumbledore and even HP himself. Take part in Hagrid’s magical games and see if he can resist performing magic outside Hogwarts.

Get sorted by the magical Sorting Hat into Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw or Slytherin. Affirm your new house status by making your own house badge, broomstick, magic wand, or golden snitch. You can even star in your own adventure with green screen animation. Magic indeed.
