A society for all fans of Harry Potter; whether you have read the books twenty times or only seen the films once, everyone is welcome!
We meet every Monday in the Cottrell building in 2B121 at 6:30pm, with new events every week.
Past meetings have included a fanfiction competition, games night with Harry Potter based trivia questions, scavenger hunts, a murder mystery and a Trelawney Night, featuring tarot card, tea leaf, and rune stone readings. Last year we held our very own Semester at Hogwarts, our members attended classes such as Potions (mocktail making), Transfiguration (origami), Defense against the Dark Arts (nerf gun war) and Muggle Studies (fandoms week). We have also collaborated with several different societies over the years and hope to hold some more magical collabs this year!
We hold our very own Yule Ball at Christmas time; it has been nominated for Best Event twice, and is so successful that it will be back this year! As well as a three course dinner guests are provided with a welcome cocktail, sweetie buffet, DJ and a LIVE OWL HANDLING SESSION!!!! Regardless of whether it’s your first Christmas at uni or your last, Yule Ball will give you a magical night to remember, as well as lots of owl selfies!
Our members also have the opportunity to go to London to visit the Warner Brothers Studio Tour: The Making of Harry Potter in semester two. We get the train down from Edinburgh and go out as a group for dinner the night before, and then spend all our student loan at the studio gift shop the next day!
Pack your trunk, mount your broom and solemnly swear you're up to no good! Join Wizarding for another spellbinding year!
