For many of us it was a devastating feeling when an owl didn’t arrive on our eleventh birthday, carrying our letter to real life Hogwarts School For Witchcraft and Wizardry. Until now.
In order to fulfill your wildest wizard fantasies, the Mimbulus Mimbletonia Association, a fan-based group, is opening up a real life Hogwarts experience for everyone from true bloods to muggle borns. The real life Hogwarts experience will be held in France at the Château de Jolibert. This means that you should be fluent in French, because all the lessons will be presented in French. Also, instead of having to only be eleven years old, witches and wizards have to be sixteen years of age or older to be accepted into the real life Hogwarts experience. Only a hundred witches and wizards will be able to participate in the real life Hogwarts experience which will take place from Thursday, 25 May 2017 to Sunday, 28 May 2017.
The real life Hogwarts experience will give fans of the wizarding world the opportunity to experience what legendary Harry Potter and his fellow witches and wizards experienced when they received their magical training. The four-day real life Hogwarts experience is based on the first book in the series written by J.K. Rowling – Philosopher’s Stone.
As part of the real life Hogwarts experience, witches and wizards will take part in a sorting ceremony where they will be sorted into their houses. After that, students will get the opportunity to play and try out for Quidditch. Magical classes at the real life Hogwarts school will be given in Botany, Potions, and Charms.
It will cost you €185. The price includes four days worth of magical-inspired activities, dorm room accommodation (we’re guessing simulating how Harry and his friends bunked it up) and meals. The price does not include any special equipment, but the page promises that there will be mysteries to spend your money on during the four-day real life Hogwarts experience.
