In case you didn’t know, this year marks 20 years since the world read ‘Mr. and Mrs. Dursley, of number four, Privet Drive, were proud to say that they were perfectly normal, thank you very much’ and instantly got absorbed into the world of witchcraft and wizardry. It’s a reason to celebrate, we’ve told you about the Harry Potter supper club, but now there is a Harry Potter conference coming to The Book Club in Shoreditch: Potter, Past and Present. Yep, two days for all your Potter fans to discuss, debate and generally swoon over the last twenty Potter filled years.
The weekend will be filled with presentations, talks and discussions from fans, writers and journalists as they discuss the legacy and future of the books, as well as presenting their fascinating ideas and theories for the first time. To get the conversation going, not that we can imagine Potter fans will need any help, there’ll be a Chamber of Secrets bar in the basement and sorting hat cocktails – it’s thinking and drinking. You’ll also have a chance to prove just how much you know about the boy who lived in the cupboard under the stairs, in the ultimate Harry Potter trivia quiz on the Saturday night. Quills at the ready…
Potter, Past and Present will take place at The Book Club, Shoreditch on the 29th and 30th July 2017.

A bit of a cake connoisseur, Editor, Emily is constantly on the search for the best brownie London has to offer, a restaurant once even put them on the menu when they heard she was visiting… You’ll either find her on a night out or debriefing over brunch the next day with plenty of coffee and eggs.
