  • Harry Potter Quiz

    October 15, 2019
    Dust off your robes, sellotape your wand, cage your owl, and enter the magical world for just one night.

    Prove your knowledge of the Potterverse across six quiz rounds designed to weed out the Hufflepuffs from the Ravenclaws. Binge watch the films and prepare for the picture round and test your abilities as an auror… think you could spot a death eater amongst the Harry Potter cast? And, if like a true Gryffindor you want to push yourself to the limit, take on series of punishing tasks for extra house points. Don’t worry… we’ve left the dragons in Romania with Charlie Weasley.

    Wizardry is so much more than a Harry Potter quiz. So step into our universe and expect the unexpected. Choose your quiz according to your strengths. Or become a prefect and attend all four!

    Disclaimer: this quiz is a celebration of the entire Potterverse. Quiz questions will cover the Harry Potter books and films, as well as some on Fantastic Beasts. But that won’t phase a true Potter fan… right?
