Dear Harry Potter fans,

We are pleased to inform you that you now have the chance to be admitted at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry to be held at Jolibert Bourgougnague Castle in Lot-et-Garonne region in France this coming May 2017.

It has been 20 years since "The Boy who Lived" under the cupboard in his hand-me-downs received the life-changing admission letter from Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Since then, people from across the globe has watched Harry Potter's life unfold.

The book may have ended but the spirit still lives on as avid aficionados of Mimbulus Mimbletonia Association organized a Hogwarts-inspired school where 100 Harry Potter fans get the chance to be admitted. Set at Jolibert Castle in France, it is expected that the numbers will be easily filled and future students shall come either via Platform 9 ¾ or via Knight Bus.

This limited three-day Hogwarts experience will commence on the 25th and will end on the 28th of May 2017. It is said that students shall be sorted into different houses and shall be looking forward to classes on Herbology, Potions, and even Muggle Quidditch at the said event. Full details on the course will be announced on Halloween at Mimbulus Mimbletonia Association Facebook Page.

Although, this concept is not the first Hogwarts'-inspired school for Harry Potter Fans. A live-action role-playing (LARP) College of Wizardry in Czocha Castle in Lesna, Poland began its operations last 2014 which also offers a three-night course for $406 and commences classed three times a year.

And because there is no direct tie-up with Warner Bros. Inc or J.K. Rowling, the organizers found a unique way to spin it off: non-magic folks or "Muggles" are called "Mundanes"; instead of four houses, they have five houses and worked to complete their S.P.E.L.Ls (Senior Protective Enchanter's Lifelong License).

Who knows, these two schools may hold their very own Quidditch cup soon.
