It has been almost twenty years since J.K. Rowling first welcomed us into the enchanting world of Hogwarts, and shared the remarkable stories of Harry, Ron and Hermione with us, and we’ve been enthralled ever since. This year, we want you to help us celebrate the phenomenon that is Harry Potter.
On Thursday 4th February, we are embracing all things magical and hosting Harry Potter themed events in conjunction with Bloomsbury’s Harry Potter Book Night. There is going to be an array of interactive activities taking place from 3pm through to the evening with something to entertain every Harry Potter fan.
Please read on for details of the activities you can get involved in:
3pm onwards: Do you fancy yourself as a conscientious and loyal Hermione or more of a cunning Malfoy? Find out which Hogwarts House you belong to with our very own Sorting Hat.
3-6pm: Every time a child buys a book in Foyles, they will be given Wizarding Money to spend in a special Wizard Shop set up in the Children’s Department (for one night only!).
3-4pm: Here’s your chance to prove yourself on the Quidditch pitch with our golden snitch treasure hunt – gather as many edible snitches as you can!
4-5pm: Help to cheer Dobby up by decorating his lost socks! Join in with our Dobby’s Sock Decorating Workshop in the children’s department.
6-7pm: For the more mature Harry Potter fans, we will be hosting a Spell-ing Bee which involves competing with other knowledgeable Harry Potter lovers to spell out the trickiest of spells. The champion will be crowned Foyles’ greatest Harry Potter fan and be awarded with their very own Harry Potter Wand.
Join us for this spell-binding evening to help celebrate J.K. Rowling’s unforgettable books, and why not come dressed in your witch and wizard finery! Be sure to share your Foyles Harry Potter celebrations on twitter using #HarryPotterBookNight.
