Events Roundup: Virtual Tours, Q&A with Mark Williams, and Trivia for Days
It’s that time again. We know you just love knowing about fun wizarding events to attend, virtually or in real life. If we’re being totally honest, we also love bringing them to you. Here we go with another Events Roundup! Let’s get started. Oh, and don’t forget your wands.
LEGO Harry Potter and the Transgender Witch
This online series is bringing love and inclusivity to everyone in the Harry Potter fandom. New Hogwarts student Quincy Blueburger is trying to find her way in the wizarding world and is forced to overcome obstacles she never thought she would encounter. The stop-animation feature follows Quincy as she braves the halls of Hogwarts in her journey to fight for equality. Each character is featured in the LEGO style, and the show is posted online in single-episode increments. Four episodes have already been posted to YouTube, Facebook, and Instagram. You can catch Quincy in the next episode, too, which is set to air on March 8. For more information, dates, and past episodes, check out the event website.

Mark Williams will be in conversation with David Broster on March 4 at 11:00 a.m. GMT (6:00 a.m. EST). The event is free to attend and will be streamed online.

Registration is $10 per team, and the event will be held on March 3 at 8:30 p.m. EST. You’d better start reading. For more information, check out the event page online.
Harry Potter Movie Trivia
Who needs to read all seven books when you can watch the movies and get the same experience, right? While we may judge you only a little bit (a lot) for that, there is an event for the movie fans too. This event will be hosted over Facebook Live for anyone who wants to join in the fun. Questions will be asked over three rounds, and winners will walk away with the satisfaction of a Ravenclaw after finals. Mark your calendars for March 10 at 8:00 p.m. EST. For more information, check out the event page online. Registration is free and open to the public.
