Celebrating 20 Years of Harry Potter Magic  08/03/2017

This sounds like a fun outing to plan for October if you are going to be in London. Mark your calendar...

From the beginning of next month, Harry Potter fans will be able to buy tickets for the upcoming exhibition, Harry Potter: A History of Magic, at the British Library, which is set to open on the 20th of October 2017.

The exhibition forms part of the celebrations for the 20th anniversary of the UK publication of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone. Manuscripts, magical objects and myths from across the globe will be featured along with new material from J.K. Rowling and Bloomsbury.

Each room in the exhibition will be devoted to a different class from the Hogwarts curriculum, including Defence Against the Dark Arts, Potions and Divination.

Over 100 specially-selected artefacts will go on display, some of which are centuries old and reside in the British Library. Other pieces are on loan from institutions around the world.

Today the British Library website unveiled a few artefacts that will appear in the exhibition, including this image of a Mandrake, drawn by Jim Kay for Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets Illustrated Edition.

Harry Potter: A History of Magic opens at the British Library on 20 October 2017, until 28 February 2018. Tickets go on sale 3 April, and you can sign up for more information at the British Library website.
