Gryffindors, Hufflepuffs, Ravenclaws and Slytherins are all invited to this magical high tea that will be coming to Melbourne in October. Bring your wands and don your cloaks and get ready for butterbeer—a mystery location awaits.

It’s all very secretive; you’ll be sent clues about the location in the month leading up to the event, but you won’t know where you’re going for sure until the week before. But there are a few things we do know—because, like Hermione, we’ve done our research. 

Here’s what we know: there will be butterbeer for all and the food will all be Potter-themed. If you’re attending the Twilight (18+) session, you’ll also be treated to wickedly good Polyjuice Potions and Cursed Cocktails. All tickets include a potion-making class too, so you can impress Snape with your inner potions master.  

There will be three sessions per day from Friday 22 October to Sunday 24 October, with all-ages sessions at 11am and 2.30pm, followed by an adults-only twilight session at 7pm. Tickets start at $60 for day sessions and $85 for twilight, or you can opt for a $220 family pass for two adults and two children. Accio credit card and click here to get your tickets asap.
