Details

Have you ever wanted to delve into Divination, ponder the peculiarities of Potions and discover magical creatures? Now you can. In partnership with the British Library, Wakefield Library will be capturing the traditions of folklore and magic at the heart of the Harry Potter stories to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the publication of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone.

The exhibition will open at Wakefield Library on Saturday 21 October. A display of objects from Wakefield Museum and a local history panel will highlight Wakefield’s own magical traditions and folklore and the exhibition will be accompanied by a winter of magical events for all ages.

The Harry Potter: A History of Magic regional displays have been created in association with the British Library throughout the Living Knowledge Network, an innovative partnership with 21 major libraries across the UK.

The British Library’s major exhibition in partnership with Bloomsbury, Harry Potter: A History of Magic, is open in London from 20 October 2017 – 28 February 2018. Book your ticket for this extraordinary new addition to J.K. Rowling’s Wizarding World at www.bl.uk.
