To celebrate the launch of the augmented reality and location-based game Harry Potter; Wizards Unite, the Gold Coast is transforming into Hogwarts…for one night only. 

This Saturday 1 June, The Ministry Of Magic is calling on witches and wizards to assist with the important task of containing the traces of magic that have appeared in Circle on Cavill. Six Golden Snitches, the smallest ball used in Quidditch, have gone missing and need to be returned urgently.

The missing Snitches will instigate a Golden Snitch Hunt in the precinct from 5:30pm with the witches and wizards vigilant enough to find them in their unpredictable hiding spots rewarded with a generous prize.

All witches and wizards in attendance at the Golden Snitch Hunt will be remunerated for their efforts with a Harry Potter movie marathon where Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone, and Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets will be screened under the stars. 

The first flick will kick off at 6pm, with free popcorn and hot chocolate from San Churro available from Platform 9 3/4’s stall.

To encourage witches and wizards to adorn their full attire to the event, a $200 Circle on Cavill voucher will be awarded to the best-dressed witch or wizard.

Grab the Ron to your Hermione, the Ginny to your Harry, don your finest robes and hunt that snitch.
