Magical Witchcraft & Wizardry

Saturday 26th October @ 10:00 am - 4:30 pm

£2.50 - £15.00

Magical Witchcraft & Wizardry Day
Elsecar Heritage Centre, Barnsley
October 26th 2019 | 10am – 4.30pm

Join us inside the Ironworks at Elsecar Heritage Centre for a magical family day out with witchcraft and wizardry themed activities. Children can enjoy making & decorating their own magic wands so they can use them to cast magical spells, take part in a Care Of Magical Creatures class, Potion Making and other classes with themed character teachers. Watch swooping owls fly through the Great Hall right over your heads, and have your family photo taken with Potter themed backgrounds and props. Best of all – you can ride on the “Hoggywarts” Express Steam Train and treat yourselves to some spooky sweets from the trolley!

You can also browse the stalls in Hexagon Alley, have a buttery beer from the bar and enjoy some delicious street food! A great day out for the whole family, with a Potter themed magical twist!

Harry Potter inspired fancy dress is very much encouraged!

The activities will take approximately 2 hours to complete with at least 6 magical activities included in the ticket price, including a ride on the steam train, but you are welcome to stay longer and enjoy the event and have some food and drink too! Children can complete a passport of stamps as they work their way around the activities.

There are also additional optional activities that will incur a small extra cost, such as spooky pumpkin carving, but you can pre-book your pumpkin in advance if you’d like to.

Choose an arrival time when you book your tickets. Entrance times are staggered to ensure everyone can enjoy all the activities, please try to arrive for your selected time on the day.
