Merlin’s beard, Harry Potter is turning 36 this year, and to celebrate, The Peeves Gang have organised an early birthday gathering at Brown Alley (‘Diagon Alley was already booked’) on Friday the 29th of July. While Harry and Ginny celebrate with their three children, Muggles from Melbourne are invited to ‘spin around like a crazy elf’ and ‘boogie down like a unicorn’ until ‘the break of dawn’. Slip into your capes and best dress robes as there will be a best-dressed competition as well as a Live Magic Show with a magical beast’s demonstration. Also, don’t forget to try the free photo booth to see your face in the Daily Prophet, but beware – who knows what Rita Skeeter will write. Butter Beer, Polyjuice Potion, and Firewhisky will flow through the night, so it’s recommended you assign a designated broomstick driver. This is the biggest event in Melbourne’s wizarding calendar, so hurry and get your tickets fast.
