Fan TC Con in Isle of Wight
In association with Wessex Cancer Trust, Fan TC Con is taking place in Cowes, Isle of Wight, on November 5. There, you’ll be able to meet Hebe Beardsall, who appeared as Ariana Dumbledore in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2.
Other people you might see there include The Last Kingdom‘s Joseph Millson, Torchwood actor Kai Owen, and Game of Thrones‘s Clive Mantle. Tickets can be bought online.
Worthwich Wizarding Weekend in Texas
A three-day magical retreat for adults is taking place this November in central Texas at a camp just south of Fort Worth.
Between November 11 and 13, head to Worthwich Wizarding Weekend, where you can attend up to nine wizarding classes (Potions, Charms, Herbology, Divinations, Defensive Magic, Ancient Runes, Magical Creatures, Theory of Magic, and Flying Lessons), living out your dream of attending wizarding school.
Meals are included for the duration of the stay, and there are unlimited drinks, snacks, and nighttime adult brews available.
You’ll also get Sorted into your Hogwarts House and lodge alongside your Housemates. The website describes the accommodations:
Students sorted into the same house stay in a co-ed lodge with twin beds. Groups can request to be sorted together if they wish to share a dorm.
Each lodge has [its] own restrooms and showers with private changing areas, and is equipped with AC/Heating and plenty of electric outlets. Students will need to provide their own bedding, pillows, toiletries (hand soap provided), and towels.
