'Hogwarts' unveiled as theme of Harry Potter Book Night 2018

Bloomsbury Children’s Books has revealed that 'Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry' will be the theme for Harry Potter Book Night 2019.

The celebration returns for a fifth year on 7th February 2019 with the publisher aiming to make it the “biggest” Harry Potter Book Night yet.

The event will focus on the fictional Hogwarts School, located in the Scottish Highlands, which Harry Potter and his friends attend in J K Rowling’s bestselling series. The institution features staircases which constantly move, portraits that talk to each other and students who get to study magical lessons such as Potions, Charms, Transfiguration and Herbology.

There have now been over 35,000 events organised since Harry Potter Book Night began in 2015, with over 13,000 organised in 2018, according to Bloomsbury.

“With an updated event kit themed around Hogwarts and lots more exciting elements yet to be announced, once again fans of all ages will have the chance to celebrate J K Rowling’s wonderful novels – and pass the magic on to young readers who haven’t yet discovered these unforgettable books,” a Bloomsbury spokesperson said.

This year's event celebrated 'Fantastic Beasts' while the 2017 theme was 'Professors of Hogwarts'.
