Harry Potter Fans Will Be Able To Enrol At A Wizardry School In Manchester

A Manchester monastery will be converted into a school of witchcraft and wizardry in February.

Gorton Monastery in Manchester will be transformed into an academy of magic on February 23, where pupils will be able to learn the ancient arts of wizardry. The school will offer classes in wand-duelling, potion-making and herbology as well as the opportunity to learn about the secrets behind the magic.

After four lessons, the day will end with a graduation ceremony in the building’s Great Nave, where an actor from the Harry Potter films will present pupils with certificates. Students will also be given a wand to take home and lunch will be provided.

The event has been organised by the team behind independent Harry Potter fan convention Draig-Con, which took over the Printworks in July and Victoria Warehouse in October for Halloween.

Tickets for Wizardry School are available here and are priced at £99 for the full day, which will run from 9.30am to 6pm.
