For one day, in October, the Peak District town of Wirksworth will be transformed into the home of wizards and witches fitting of one of the Harry Potter films. Indeed, it is the sensational success of the Harry Potter franchise that’s stoked the interest of those taking part in the event for another year.

Building on the success of previous years, visitors to the event on Sunday, October 9, 2022, will be able to enjoy magic and wonder including snakes, owls, broomsticks, train rides and hundreds of witches and wizards all decked out in their robes. Fans of the Harry Potter books and films are expected to descend on Wirksworth casting their spells and see if they, like Harry, can ride on a magical broomstick.

Other activities on offer on the day include a Wizarding Express Train from Duffield to Wirksworth and an Owlery is also sure to be a hoot at Wirksworth Station. Two pubs in the town, The Red Lion and The Feather Star are also planning a number of activities as the whole day takes hold of the entire town.

A smoking dragon will also be guarding its nest of goodies from anyone brave enough to attempt to swipe on for themselves and no Harry Potter theme day would be complete without a quick game of Quidditch. Wirksworth will face Middleton Village in the hotly anticipated re-match.

Along with many stalls, Wild Roots Creative charms and herbology classes, there will also be a Great Hall Feast taking place in the Town Hall.

The Wizarding day runs all day on Sunday, October 9, with money being raised for Aquabox and the Wirksworth Skatepark appeal. Further details including how to book tickets for the train ride, can be found on the Wirksworth Wizarding Facebook page.
