Happy Birthday, Harry Potter!

Online ordering for this event is now closed. But fear not! Tickets are still available! Please call (801-484-9100) or come into the store to purchase your ticket!

It’s been 21 years since the first Harry Potter book, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, was published, and that’s something to celebrate. On the evening of Tuesday, July 31, The King’s English Bookshop will once again magically transform itself into Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry and offer three classes – Divination, Astronomy, and Muggle Studies – for Salt Lake’s wizards and witches. 

To enroll in the Hogwarts courses, students must be Harry’s age (11) or older.* Students can pay their $10 tuition fee online, in person, or over the phone, to register for the courses. Classes will be taught consecutively in one of three time blocks: 5 p.m., 6:10 p.m., or 7:20 p.m. Please indicate your preference of time block when paying your tuition. Space is limited as Hogwarts prides itself on its low student/teacher ratio, and registration is required, so sign up soon! Sorry, no refunds. 

Can’t make it to class? Dress in costume and visit the bookshop anytime during the day or evening! There will be a photo op, fortune-telling, juggling, and a Harry Potter-themed Scavenger Hunt throughout the bookshop.

*Storytime will be offered from 5-9 p.m. for young wizards and witches.
