San Antonio Harry Potter Day to mark 20th Anniversary
- A programme of activities to celebrate the 20th anniversary of J.K. Rowling’s first Harry Potter novel
- The Espai Jove centre, San Antonio, Saturday 29th July 2017
In a celebration of the books and films of the Harry Potter, the Espai Jove of Sant Antoni weill become Hogwarts for the day on Saturday the 29th with a programme the San Antonio town council say will be a “day of alternative entertainment to delight the young ‘pottermaniacos’, who will be able to enjoy different activities related to the magical universe created by JK Rowling” – and we have to agree it does look to be a fantastic programme.
The day will begin at noon and will continue until three in the morning, although for children the activities will end at midnight.
At the beginning of the day , the ‘sorting hat’ will decide which Hogwarts house each of the young witches and wizards will join. All will receive their house emblem and must compete with their teammates to accumulate points in each of the trials and become the winning house.
Butter Beer at the Leaky Cauldron
On the first floor of the Espai, fans of Harry, Hermione and Ron will be able to go through the photocall ‘Have you seen this magician?’, While on the second floor they will be able to portray themselves as villains in ‘he who must not be named’.
The Espai will house its own tavern, ‘El Caldero Dripping’ or the leaky cauldron for those of the book’s native tongue. Inside you can taste a selection of appetisers and the famous (non-alcoholic) butter beer of the magic world.
In addition, it will also have its Diagón Alley, with the collaboration of the bookstore Sa Cultural.
Throughout the day there will be table games for the young wizards and a role playing game entitled ‘The Order of the Phoenix’, set in the time of Mr. Tenebroso’s boom.
The Delicious Flavours of Rotten Eggs & Earwax,
The trolley witch will offer sweets of all flavors and competitors will be able to beat their rivals and accumulate points by tasting delicious flavors such as a candy cloud or disgusting rotten egg and ear wax.
Other good opportunities to get points for Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw or Slytherin houses will be the Horcrux hunting, the magician or magic creature costumes contest (6pm) or Potterquiz (7pm). Plus on the second floor, alchemy fans will enjoy a class in potions and spells.
The event is organised by the Department of Youth, with the collaboration of the association Dracs d’Eivissa.
We regret that information on enrolment is a little ambiguous and there is no information on age range. We think it is stating that you enrol on the day. Unfortunately their website agenda does not seem to be updated since May. We will clarify as soon as possible.
