Some Muggle Is Recreating the Great Hall for a Harry Potter-Themed Brunch

It'll just like a regular Hogwarts breakfast, only with less magic and more booze.

Updated: Tickets are now available for the three Auckland Wizard's Brunch sittings on November 2, 2019. Get in quick — they're extremely limited.


If Harry Potter movies were still gracing cinemas, exploring The Boy Who Lived's adult life, we're certain he'd be a brunch fan. It's a magical meal, after all.

Whether you're still not over Harry or you just wish you'd had the chance to attend Hogwarts because you know you're destined to be in Gryffindor (and to be seeker on the quidditch team, obviously), you'll want to make a date with The Wizard's Brunch.

After three sell-out sessions in Sydney, the themed feast, spanning both brunch and dinner, is jumping the ditch for a run in Auckland. You'll dine in a Great Hall-like space, matching your meal (Pixie Puffs, please) with bottomless butterbeer, 'magic' potions (aka cocktails, we're assuming) and other wizard-themed beverages. And you can bet the menu will include every Potter pun you can think of.

The particulars such as the exact date, venue and how many galleons you'll have to spend haven't been revealed as yet, though keen muggles can sign up to The Wizard's Brunch email list for more information. What we do know, however, is that there'll be Harry Potter characters mingling with attendees. Folks in costumes pretending to be Hermione, Dumbledore and others isn't really our idea of a magical HP experience, but perhaps a few firewhiskys — and a spot of quidditch, a couple of sorting ceremonies and wand lessons — will get you in the right mood.

The Wizard's Brunch will take place in Auckland on November 2, 2019. Find tickets here
