The School libraries were filled with aspiring young wizards and witches as pupils celebrated Harry Potter Book Night in their lunchtime clubs. With pointy hats for pupils and ‘Professor Caller’ wearing robes for the occasion, it was easy to imagine the Girls’ Division Turret Library, Boys’ Division Lower School Library and Junior Girls’ Library had transformed into Hogwarts.

Pupils were sorted into their Hogwarts Houses as part of the celebration. Gryffindors, Hufflepuffs, Ravenclaws and Slytherins then went head-to-head in a competition to see which House could win the most points.

Pairs of pupils played a combination of Charades and Pictionary, hoping that the rest of their House team would be able to guess a random Harry Potter item or character. There was fierce rivalry between all four Houses and pupils thoroughly enjoyed recognising things from the Wizarding World through their friends’ acting and drawings.

They also had fun tracking down the Monster Book of Monsters – and gaining extra House points if they knew how to subdue this dangerous volume!

The events in School were organised by librarian Mrs Caller as part of Bloomsbury’s Harry Potter Book Night, which annually encourages fans around the world to host their own ‘book parties’ themed around the world of Harry Potter.
