Manchester’s magnificent Monastery is playing host to a mystical new school, opening on Saturday 23rd February 2019 and organised by the same team that put on the spectacular Draig-Con event at the Manchester Printworks in July and October at Victoria Warehouse.

The Wizardry School will accept 250 students for a full day of lessons, taught by Wizard Masters trained in the ancient arts of sorcery and spell-making. Wand-duelling, Potion Making, Herbology and Secrets Behind The Magic will provide the curriculum but students will also be expected to sign-up for the Charter of Responsible Wizardry.

The School will be set in the incredible backdrop of The Monastery in Gorton, Manchester, where magic in the air has always been a part of this inspirational venue. The day will end with a Graduation Ceremony in the breath-taking Great Nave, with certificates being presented by an actor from one of the Harry Potter films.

Please note, the Wizardry School is not operated by The Monastery, and is an event created by and for fans of Harry Potter books and movies.
