Bloomsbury Celebrates 20th Anniversary of “Chamber of Secrets” with Weekly House Takeover
The 20th anniversary of Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets takes place on July 2, 2018, and Bloomsbury is celebrating in style! Each week leading up to the anniversary, Bloomsbury is honoring one Hogwarts House on its social media pages.
The first House to take the spotlight is Gryffindor! If you’re a Gryffindor, you can celebrate with a new House wallpaper for your computer or your phone. You can also set a special Twitter or Facebook profile picture so all your friends can see your House pride!
Bloomsbury is also running competitions on its “Harry Potter Books from Bloomsbury” Facebook page, Twitter, and Instagram. Each week, you’ll have a chance to submit a photo showing why you’re the best champion for your House. Tag your entry appropriately and Bloomsbury will select the best ones. The final winners will then be chosen by an open poll.
Contest winners receive both House editions of Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets corresponding to the featured House of that week! Unfortunately for those living in the United States, the contests are only open to residents of Australia, New Zealand, the Republic of Ireland, and the United Kingdom.
COMPETITION TIME! We are looking for the best House Champions – this week, Gryffindor (we’ll celebrate each house weekly in turn)! Post your photo that shows why you’re the ultimate Gryffindor house champion, tagging @bloomsburypublishing in the photo, #HousePride and #ChamberofSecrets. The best photo, as chosen by you, will WIN THE GRYFFINDOR HOUSE EDITIONS of Chamber of Secrets. RULES: (full t&cs link in bio) 1. Please do NOT feature unofficial merchandise. 2. This competition is open to UK, ROI, AU and NZ residents. We’ll share the best, and open voting via Instagram Polls for you all to decide on the ultimate Gryffindor House champion! Next week will be the Hufflepuff takeover, as we build-up to the publication of the House Editions of HARRY POTTER AND THE CHAMBER OF SECRETS (out 28th June).
If you’re lucky enough to be a resident of any of those places, you will also receive an exclusive recycled leather House bookmark if you pre-order a hardback House edition of Chamber of Secrets before midnight GMT on June 27, 2018.
Next week, Bloomsbury is featuring Hufflepuff, with Ravenclaw and Slytherin to follow. Keep checking Bloomsbury’s social media pages so you can show your House pride and participate in the contests when it’s your House’s week. Also, don’t forget to pre-order Chamber of Secrets before its release on June 28!
