Harry Potter themed activities

Supporting the BID City Centre Wizarding world of Wands event.

Stoke on Trent City Centre BID is bringing a dazzling installation of Wizarding World Wands to Hanley from the 21st to the 27th March. The wands will tour four UK locations including Stoke-on-Trent in celebration of the release of Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore, in cinemas on 8th April 2022.

Installation consists of nine 15ft-tall wands representing nine beloved characters from Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts films.

The four chosen cities – Hull, Birmingham, Stoke-on-Trent and Reading – were voted for by the public and will each host the exciting installation for seven days.

Standing 15 feet tall and set within concrete bases, the nine wands – bringing to life those belonging to some of the favourite characters in the Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts films – will illuminate each evening, performing a light show to the thrilling music from the Fantastic Beasts and Harry Potter films.

Polly Cochrane, Country Manager WarnerMedia UK & Ireland, says, “We are delighted that this stunning installation will be touring for the first time next month and the magic will be shared with even more fans. Following a nationwide vote, it’s exciting to know that we’re bringing the wands to the biggest Wizarding World fans across the UK as we celebrate the upcoming release of Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore.”
