Blessington to host spe­cial Pot­ter quiz

Wicklow People - - NEWS -

Those who know their ‘ac­cio’ and ‘acro­man­tula’ from their ‘knut’ and ‘knea­zle’ will be jump­ing on the Hog­warts Ex­press and head­ing straight for a spe­cial quiz in west Wick­low this week.

The Harry Pot­ter Trivia Tour­na­ment presents a chal­lenge of cham­pi­ons where the mug­gles are sep­a­rated from the witches and wiz­ards to see who is most knowl­edge­able about the se­cret, mag­i­cal world of Harry Pot­ter.

The event, a cel­e­bra­tion to mark 20 years of Harry Pot­ter magic, takes place at 1 p.m. this Mon­day, July 31, in the Hip­po­drome at Russ­bor­ough House and is be­ing hosted by the Blessington Book Store and Russ­bor­ough House and Park­lands. Teams of four will com­pete for prizes of spe­cial Harry Pot­ter edi­tions and mer­chan­dise from Blooms­bury Pub­lish­ing.

The quiz will be fol­lowed by a spe­cial dis­play from the Na­tional Bird of Prey Cen­tre and af­ter­wards,ev­ery­one will be wel­come to meet the birds, who will have their feath­ers preened and ready for plenty of self­ies.

The quiz will be an all-Ire­land af­fair as the Blessington Book Store has been se­lected by Blooms­bury Pub­lish­ing as the only shop in Ire­land (and one of only 20 book­shops in to­tal) to host the Harry Pot­ter Trivia Tour­na­ment.

Teams ar­riv­ing in wiz­ard­ing robes or their best Pot­ter-themed cos­tume can earn bonus points.

Lim­ited tick­ets are avail­able for this event and must be booked on­line at: www.eventbrite.ie/e/harry-pot­ter-trivia-tour­na­ment-tick­ets-35919434997?aff=es2

Tick­ets are €40 for a ta­ble of four to en­ter the trivia tour­na­ment and en­joy the Birds of Prey dis­play. En­try to the car park at Russ­bor­ough costs €2.
