Event details

Something magical is happening at the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh, inspired by the Harry Potter: A History of Magic exhibition at the British Library…

For one night only, the Garden’s wizarding equivalent, Hogweed’s School of Botany & Magical Horticulture, will be visible to muddles (non-gardening folk). Join us for this once in a lifetime opportunity to peek behind the scenes at this mysterious organisation and find out more about the magical plants that it cultivates and how those plants can be used to create the magical potion known as gin.

Drinks on arrival will be followed by attendance at 4 magical lessons. Classes include Potions, Charms, Herbology, History of Magic Plants, Transfiguration and Alchemy.

Brought to you by the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh, Edinburgh Gin, the ECFP - Edinburgh Complex Fluid Partnership and Edinburgh Libraries, this fun event will, we hope, leave you inspired by the magical world of plants.

This event is for over 18s only.
