Harry Potter Day
Join us in the magical surroundings of The John Rylands Library for hours of wizarding fun! At the Hogwarts school tables you can try some magical craft activities – including making your own wand, mixing mysterious potions, transfiguring yourself with face painting and solve the mystery of the Half-Blood Prince’s forbidden potion by following the hidden clues.
Come dressed as your favourite character and win a special prize! Then watch Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince in our Historic Reading Room and join Harry for his sixth year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.
