February 4 2016 will see the second annual Harry Potter Book Night celebrated throughout the world. Here in Northumberland, we’re getting ready to host a range of events and two libraries will be hosting an unforgettable ‘Night of Spells’.
On Harry Potter Book Night: A Night of Spells, we’ll be sharing the wonder of J.K. Rowling’s unforgettable stories and, most excitingly, introducing the next generation of readers to the unparalleled magic of Harry Potter.
The fun kicks off at Hexham Library at 3.30pm, young wizards, witches and muggles aged 8 – 12 years will be treated to games, activities, readings and quizzes. It all begins when the Sorting Hat decides who will be in which House, competing for house points throughout the evening’s challenges. These will include creating our own magical spells, readings from our favourite Harry Potter books and the Ultimate Spellathon trivia challenge! We’ll be dressing up the venue and creating our own Potions Corner as well as serving up wizard snacks inspired by the books.
‘Night of Spells’ starts at 4pm at Cramlington Library. 5 – 11 year olds will have a magical evening . After being sorted into their houses, children will make their own magical wand (which they will need to take part in a charms class!), play table quidditch and take part in the trivia challenge – with a prize for the winning team!
Children visiting Bedlington Station Library can join in the fun for the whole week! The library will be running a Harry Potter themed activity table from Monday 1st – Saturday 6th February. Activities will be available during library opening hours.
5th Berwick Beavers will also be joining in the fun by having their very own ‘Night of Spells’ at Berwick Library.
