DraigCon will return to Manchester’s Printworks on July 6 and 7, bringing with it a Magic Market Street of Harry Potter-themed fun. The two-day independent convention will feature Harry Potter-themed traders as well as appearances from cast members, Q&A sessions with cast and crew and more.

The full list of this year’s actors has yet to be confirmed but organisers have revealed it will include Josh Herdman, who played Goyle, Hebe Beardsall, who played Ariana Dumbledore and Chris Rankin, who played Percy Weasley.
