Magical nights in store for Rotherham's Harry Potter fans

HARRY Potter fans can relive one of their hero’s finest hours by competing in a Tri-Wizard Tournament next month.

Literacy charity and storytelling centre Grimm & Co is paying homage to the magical inter-school face-off from Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire with an evening of tasks themed around life at Hogwart’s.

Grimm & Co will host the event at Fitzwilliam & Hughes cafe in the Minster Yard at 5pm on Thursday, February 6, to mark Harry Potter Book Night.

Tricky challenges on the night will include decorating dragon eggs, designing badges to support SPEW or your school champion, riddling past the Sphinx and testing your knowledge with a Goblet of Fire quiz and there will be with Harry Potter-related raffle prizes up for grabs.

Tickets are free (with suggested donation of £3 toward Grimm’s writing workshops) but must be booked at - search for “Harry Potter Book Night” with the location as Rotherham.

Rotherham Libraries are holding their own events to mark Harry Potter Book Night, Triwizard events at Rawmarsh Library from 3.30pm on February 6, Harry Potter activities including table-top quidditch and potion making at Wath Library from 4pm and the chance to make a mandrake at Dinnington Library from 3.30pm on February 5.
