February 6 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Join Waterstones on Harry Potter Book Night to hear from illustrators who have lovingly and carefully imagined the world of Harry Potter, and the chance to win one of two pairs of tickets to Harry Potter and the Cursed Child at the Palaca Theatre, London. Levi Pinfold and Jonny Duddle will come together to discuss Hogwarts and the Triwizard Tournament, their favourite challenge and if they would be brave enough to put their name into the Goblet of Fire.
Harry Potter Book Night is an annual fan celebration of J.K. Rowling’s wonderful series and provides a chance to pass the magic to new readers.
This event will be chaired by Chris Smith; broadcaster and co-creator of Kid Normal series. There will be an opportunity to have books signed by Levi and Jonny. Copies will be available to buy.
Dress code: Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry Finest (Muggle dress will be accepted)
