Harry Potter heading for France as chateau is turned into Hogwarts

Hogwarts will become a reality in France as a mansion is transformed

Diagon Alley will be created as part of the attraction

Monday, October 31, 2016

Next year a mansion in a small town in France will be transformed into the magical world of Hogwarts for four days.

The organisers say the event, which will take place in Château de Jolibert in Bourgougnague, will start with a sorting ceremony and drinks at the Leaky Cauldron pub. 

There will also be lessons in botany, charms and potion, as well as a test on the subjects at the end of the trip, so those attending better be paying attention. 

The famous Diagon Alley will also be recreated so visitors can buy Harry Potter-themed merchandise, including magic textbooks, wizard's robes and magic wands.

House points are up for grabs for those attending the event, in order to try and win the prestigious House Cup.

Plus organisers have not forgotten those who want to be a bit more active in their stay at Hogwarts, as they can also play the wizarding game of Quidditch. 

Unfortunately, only around 100 people will be able to take part and before you try a grab yourself a ticket, bear in mind that all visitors must be fluent in French.

The Mimbulus Mimbletonia Association fan club announced that tickets for the event at Château de Jolibert will go on sale on December 10. It costs €185 in order to attend, which includes accommodation and meals.
