A real life Hogwarts is coming to the UK, here's how you can join
A real life Hogwarts is opening in the UK this August and you don't need an acceptance letter to attend! That's right, it's your chance to make up for the time you wasted in muggle school and finally become a real wizard.
Hogwarts in East Sussex
For three days and two nights only, the 15th century Herstmonceux Castle in East Sussex will become the Bothwell School of Witchcraft. The live action role playing event will teach pupils magic spells and send them on a murder mystery-style quest to fight off magical creatures lurking around the school.
Even better, each witch and wizard will be given a robe, a new name, and sorted into a house. Although, For obvious copyrights reasons, it probably won't be Gryffindor.
Even if The Bothwell School of Witchcraft isn't connected to J.K. Rowling's work, it remains the opportunity of a lifetime for any magic enthusiast who wishes to get the full Hogwarts experience.
The event is organised in partnership with Poland's College of Wizardry and the New World Magischola in the U.S.. Does that mean we can expect a Triwizard-like tournament for next year?
Tickets for the three day event will go on sale March 28th and are expected to be £400-£450. Visit the Bothwell School of Witchcraft's website for more info.
