An Afternoon of Wizardry and Witchcraft

A must for all budding wizards and witches. Visit our fun packed afternoon of wizardry including our wand shop and wizarding sweetshop and butterbeer bar – complete with non alcoholic butterbeer, chocolate frogs, and magical treats of every flavour! Don’t miss the beans and jelly slugs in our speciality sweet shop.

Make sure to strike the right pose on our magical train platform and spot the costumed characters that will be materialising in the Howgate to meet and have photos with customers. There will also be wizard and witchcraft themed face painting, a prop builders workshop and lots of other wizard-like happenings plus a number of themed stalls throughout the centre.

Please note that the potion and slime / owl balloon workshop is limited to 10 children per 20 minute session. Pre-registration for these particular workshops is essential and can be done via the Help Desk from 11am. There is limited capacity so time slots will be allocated on a first come first served basis.

The event is free to attend but we are anticipating a busy afternoon of magical happenings so please reserve your place here or via the Howgate Help Desk. Your Eventbrite registration will not be required on the day and is to provide us with an indication of the numbers of people who plan to attend.
