Events

We have a magical year ahead of us! Every Wednesday of term we will be gathering to bewitch and beguile!

Whether you dream of brewing your own potions that will help you pass exams or beguiling people with your transfiguration skills, we have something for you!


Term 1

Wednesday 4th December – Care of Magical Creatures, Bancroft 3.17, 6.30-8pm

Whether it’s identifying what trees bowtruckles live in, or learning which dragon is which, magical creatures can bewitch or bewilder the cleverest witch and wizard! Test your skills and knowledge of Fantastic Beasts to win house points and prizes!
Wednesday 11th December – The Yule Ball, Bromley Room 2, 7pm-8.30pm

The Yule Ball is a major festive event in the Hogwarts calendar. As term comes to a close, we will feast and celebrate before eveyone goes home for the holidays. Awards may be given, food will likely be eaten and drink will definitely be drunk. Celebrate surviving your first term at Hogwarts in true style!

Dress code is formal – it is a ball after all!

PAST EVENTS

Wednesday 25th September – Sorting Ceremony, Blomely Rooms 1&2, 6.30pm-8.00pm

The Sorting Ceremony will be the first Harry Potter Society meet up of the year! Every new witch or wizard will be sorted into their house by our very own Sorting Hat. Make sure you’ve paid subs so you’ll be sorted!

This is your chance to find out whether you really are the Gryffindor you’ve always thought, or if there might be a little bit of Slytherin to you (and there’s nothing wrong with that! One of our President’s is a Slytherin!)  This is your first chance to mingle within your houses, and meet your fellow Hogwarts alumni!  This is an event not to be missed!

Make sure you’ve completed our sorting quiz and paid your membership (just on the right of this page) or we won’t be able to sort you on the day. Please fill in the sorting quiz here!

Can’t make this event? Don’t worry we have a REPEAT on Thursday 3rd October!

Wednesday 2nd October – Welcome to Hogwarts! Blomeley Room 1, 6.30pm-8.00pm

Whether you’re a witch, wizard, or just a curious muggle, all are welcome! Try your hand at making your own potion (a cup of tea or coffee), get to know your fellow Hogwarts alumni & take a photo at Platform 9 3/4, brought to QM just for you!

Cards Against Muggles will make an appearance, as well as other wizarding games, so you can get to know your fellow magical brethren! There will also be various cuddly magical creatures for you to take your photo with in front of the backdrop of Platform 9 3/4s! So make sure you have your best Madam Malkin’s Wizarding robes on!
