A stay at home Mum who doesn't stay at home much; too many exciting things to be discovering in this city...
Channel your inner Harry Potter at this magical festival
Calling all witches, wizards and magical folk; your September just got a whole lot more fantastical. On the 21st of the month the Wizard's Laneway Festival will be gracing Melbourne's Wiam Street and is set to be the wizarding event of the year. This festival is sure to bring a good dose of mystery, mayhem and mischief to your day and is jam-packed with fun things to do and see.
Enjoy live magic demonstrations and have your fortune told or tarot cards read. Visit the wand seller to purchase your very own handmade wand. Enjoy magical themed food and drinks whilst being entertained by spellbinding performances. There will be free face painting and fairy floss for the littlest witches and wizards and a photo-booth in which to capture your most magical moments. Come dressed up in your best wizarding finery to win a prize or two.
There are two sessions on offer, noon – 4pm or 4pm – 8pm. Tickets can be purchased from eventbrite and start at $11. Babies under 12 months are free and all members of the family are welcome. This event is in no way affiliated with J. K. Rowling or Harry Potter and is hosted by Wizards of Australis. Wiam Street is located just off Little Bourke Street in the heart of Melbourne City.
