August 2016 Sneaky cast a spell over Lancaster Castle filling the grounds with magical mayhem as part of their School Of Wizardry. Alongside screenings of Harry Potter films were events and attractions for wannabe wizards of all ages including a crazy cast of characters causing chaos in the cloisters; wandering wizards, grim gatekeepers and Gobby the Goblin.
To compliment the Harry Potter films our Wizards delivered Charms, Potions, Herbology and Broomstick classes within the castle grounds.
Charms Class pupils made their own wands and learnt the correct stance for casting the perfect spells. In Potions master mixers helped students mix up fizzy drinks with a sprinkle of wizarding know-how. There were Broomstick making classes, a real live owl show and of course a magic performance. A hippogriffin wandered the castle courtyard and The Wand Bodgers ran a human powered laithe hand carving reclaimed wooden wands.
Ticket holders joined one of our four houses and took part in team games to earn house points with fizzy whizzy prizes for the house which earned the most. With local and independent food stalls on site plus licensed bar The Sneaky Cauldron serving up our special ‘I can’t believe it’s not Butter Beer’. The sweet trolley lady did her rounds and everyone got into the magical mood by dressing up.
A magical experience for Harry Potter fans of all ages set in a wonderful medieval castle.
