Good news for all Harry Potter fans around the globe! This year, thanks to the Mimbulus Mimbletonia Association, a real-life Harry Potter themed wizarding school is opening its doors on the last week of May.
The Château de Jolibert in Bourgougnague, France will be the location of the school and will take place from May 25-28 this year. Fans all over the world are invited to attend, although only 100 lucky muggle-borns will be accepted and only those who are age 16 and over.
The event will mostly model the 1st year of a Hogwarts student. The lucky attendees will get a chance to be sorted in their houses by the sorting ceremony, and will also take classes in magical subjects such as Potions, Charms, and Botany. Quidditch classes are also included (but we have no idea if there's gonna be Defense Against The Dark Arts).
In their announcement, the fansite Mimbulus Mimbletonia Association said: "Mimbulus Mimbletonia is organizing an event based on the first book in the saga, Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone. Come and take part in the sorting ceremony, enroll for courses in botany, spells, potions, and of course Muggle Quidditch. Do not forget to collect points for your house, so that it can win the cup!"
Since all the activities are set in France, it is expected that French will be the main language there, hindering non-French, avid Harry Potter fans to attend the event. Who knows? If the event will be a success, maybe they'll make an English-speaking wizarding school next!
Tickets for the event are on sale since December. All the inclusions in the ticket fee encompass the students' accommodation in the castle, 4 days' worth of meals, and all lessons and activities to be done in the school.
It is also said that the organizers will also be setting up a Diagon Alley Shop to complete your Hogwarts Experience. So what are you waiting for? Better snap up those Hogwarts tickets quick!
