Marvel at the won­ders of Harry Pot­ter: A His­tory Of Magic

SFX - - Event horizon -

The boy wizard turned 20 this year – or at least his books did – and what bet­ter way to keep the cel­e­bra­tions go­ing than by vis­it­ing the Bri­tish Li­brary’s lat­est mag­i­cal ex­hibit? Harry Pot­ter: A His­tory Of Magic is kick­ing off a five-month stint at the Li­brary’s PACCAR Gallery in Oc­to­ber, with never-be­for­e­seen exhibits get­ting dusted off for the very first time.

There’ll be rare books, manuscripts and mag­i­cal ob­jects from the Bri­tish Li­brary’s col­lec­tion, as well as orig­i­nal drafts and draw­ings by JK Rowl­ing and il­lus­tra­tor Jim Kay, plus a huge 16th-cen­tury Ripley Scroll that tells you ev­ery­thing you need to know about cre­at­ing your own Philoso­pher’s Stone.

Tick­ets are avail­able now. When book­ing, you’ll have to se­lect a times­lot – ex­pect this to be a busy one.
