Herstmonceux Castle in East Sussex has organised a magical three-day event where students can learn spells and ‘encounter magical creatures.’
Students can enroll from August 11th – 13th in ‘real-life Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry’ to experience what it would be like to be a witch or wizard. The three-day experience aims to recreate the magical school from Harry Potter as closely as possible where students will get to take part in lesson to learn spells, potions, and other kinds of witchcraft.
The event is exclusive to 18-year-olds and above and cost £440 - £450. On the website, the event has been described as: "You'll stay for 3 days, full board, and be sorted into your house, take part in lessons, attend a banquet, explore the grounds and meet weird and wonderful creatures."
"All of this takes place in our enchanting 15th century castle."
"The event runs much like a murder mystery. You'll be given a role to play and a story will unfold around you where you have to interact with other characters."
"It's just like being in a movie or video game."
