Hunt for the Horcruxes, presented by Creative Factory, will feature a screening of the final Harry Potter film, The Deathly Hallows part 2, in eerie surrounding crammed full of bizarre characters and magical happenings. ARC’s largest space, The Point will play host to the screening, where viewers will be encouraged to bring along bean bags and floor cushions for additional seating.
But the film is only part of the extravaganza, which will also feature competitions to challenge your Harry Potter knowledge, stalls serving treats from Honeydukes and The Three Broomsticks as well as delights from the Hogwarts Express trolley and the chance to surround yourself in the emotional brilliance of Harry Potter.
Wizards, Witches and Muggles are invited to wear their favourite Harry Potter themed costume, be it a Deatheater, Hedwig or Harry himself, and enjoy an epic evening to remember!
