A magical Harry Potter themed brunch is coming to Manchester – and Muggles need not apply

Get ready to book a one way ticket to Hogwarts as this fully immersive Harry Potter themed brunch makes its way across the pond to Manchester as part of an eight city tour.

The famous Wizard’s Brunch has proved a sell-out hit in the States. Now organisers are bringing the magic of Harry Potter back to where the story began for a three-hour immersive dining experience unlike any other.

Prepare to be transported into the Great Hall and live out all of your Harry Potter childhood fantasies in the most breathtaking setting imaginable.

Try your hand at concocting your own potions, casting and creating your own spells – and find out what your future holds at the hand of magical fortune tellers.

With some very special guests set to appear, you might even get your own Hedwig for the day.

Or if you’re one of the few that can speak Parseltongue, head straight for Slytherin and you could be making friends with a snake or two.

And make sure you brush up on your Harry Potter trivia as each house will compete to win points and take home the house cup.

Guests are encouraged to dress up as their favourite wizarding characters, so it’s time to dust off your broomsticks, dig out your wizarding gowns and polish your wands as Harry Potter’s world of witchcraft and wizardry is recreated right in front of you.

Don’t worry if you don’t want to dress up. You are perfectly welcome to attend, although we can’t promise they won’t have some fancy dress and props on hand for those of you who change their minds once you get inside.

The three hour brunch will see a selection of wizarding foodie options available on the day – as well as vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free choices too.  

And if you’re planning on getting the family or squad together for the event, a full seating list will be shared with all ticket holders to ensure you can sit next to your nearest and dearest.

The family friendly event is perfect for all ages, but anyone aged 15 or under must be  accompanied by an adult. The event is wheelchair accessible so that everyone can experience the magic.

It takes place in August so you’ve got plenty of time to prepare your outfit and brush up on your Harry Potter knowledge.

The event’s organisers are keeping tight-lipped on the venue which will be the backdrop for this legendary wizarding feast but we can confirm that it will take place in the city centre.

Tickets for the exclusive Harry Potter-themed event can be purchased via the website on a first come first served basis and are set to go on sale in around two weeks time.

The secret location and time of the Wizard’s Brunch will be shared with ticket holders in the run up to the event taking place.

And remember, what happens at Hogwarts stays at Hogwarts – we don’t want any muggles finding out!

The only thing left to decide is – are you Slytherin, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw or Gryffindor?
