Join us, in support of the Child Cancer Foundation…
Hogwarts’ Great Hall is opening its doors to muggles this July in support of the Child Cancer Foundation. We’re creating a night of magic for Christchurch by hosting a banquet dinner and live auction evening, filled with magical moments and spellbinding cocktails.
Muggles of Christchurch, thank you for your patience! We’ve been hard at work pulling together A Night at Hogwarts as a fundraiser for the Child Cancer Foundation and we’re thrilled to announce ticketing details.
We’re creating a magical evening in support of an organisation who wave their own wands to provide strength and comfort to families, parents and children impacted by child cancer. Tickets are on sale on the anniversary of the third Triwizard Tournament task (the 24th June) at 4pm. They’re available via Humanitix, a not-for-profit ticketing platform who also believe in supporting children.
What you need to know to secure your seat:
Tickets are 9 Galleons each ($225), ex. GST.
There are strictly limited tickets available & are first-come, first-served.
Tickets on sale on the 24th June at 4pm
Seating will be ‘by House’ - so you can purchase seats together (up to 10 at a time), but the Great Hall will be set out banquet-style.
The Great Hall at The Arts Centre Te Matatiki Toi Ora will be transfigured to become Hogwarts for the night, including a banquet-style feast of Harry Potter inspired food, sweets & cocktails, with bespoke brewed ‘ButterBeer’.
DETAILS FOR THE HERMIONES AMONGST YOU (FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS) -
Is this event suitable for younger Muggles?
Sadly not - A Night at Hogwarts is R18, due to licencing requirements. However, we’ve been blown away from the interest in attending this magical evening, and so we’ve joined forces with the Isaac Theatre Royal to create more magic. They’re hosting a screening of Harry Potter & The Philosopher’s Stone on Tuesday, the 9th July at 11:00am - which is perfect for the whole whānau and you’re welcome to dress up! More details are available here.
Can I buy a corporate table?
For those of you attending from Gringotts or the Ministry of Magic, you’re welcome to purchase seats for your colleagues and coworkers. However, we’re mixing up the usual ‘table of ten’ and seating everyone by House; so you’ll be able to sit together, but you will be at a larger shared table in the spirit of the Great Hall.
Can I choose which House I’m in?
Ooh, we see you trying to pre-empt the Sorting Hat! Just as any first-year heading to Hogwarts for the first time must discover, we’re going to keep some tricks up our sleeves…. Watch this space.
Is the Feast included in my ticket price?
Your banquet (including delicious entrees, mains, a dessert trolley, wine, butterbeer and digestifs) are all included in your ticket price.
Can I reserve tickets?
We’re conscious that - with limited capacity - seats will be snapped up as quickly as tickets to the Quidditch World Cup. We’ll be posting a reminder on the event Facebook page but we encourage you to set an alarm so you don’t forget…. 4pm, 24th June!
How does A Night At Hogwarts support the Child Cancer Foundation?
All proceeds from the evening (including the Charity Auction) go to the Child Cancer Foundation.
I’d like to be more involved as a sponsor!
We knew we liked you! To either donate items for the Charity Auction, or to get involved as a sponsor, please contact Erin directly - email@example.com.
Who are the wizards behind this?
At Narrative, we’re focused on getting people into Ōtautahi to experience the magic of our city. In partnering with the Child Cancer Foundation for A Night at Hogwarts, we’re welcoming Muggles into the Arts Centre, and supporting young Kiwi kids in need. Magic!
