It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas — and, as 2021 comes to a close, it's also the perfect time to celebrate everyone's favourite wizarding franchise. This year marks two whole decades since all things Harry Potter first brought their magic to the big screen, so recognising the occasion while getting festive is the ideal way to serve up some extra cheer.

You can obviously accio up your own commemorations whenever and however you like — or you can head along to Christmas in the Wizarding World in Federation Square. Taking place from 5pm on Tuesday, December 7, it'll combine two of the best ways to celebrate HP in Melbourne, pairing a live performance by the Harry Potter and the Cursed Child cast with a big-screen showing of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone.

Basically, you'll be bookending all your Pottermania with the very first flick to reach cinemas and the stage continuation that picked up the story where the novels and movies left off.

Entry is free, and there'll also be a virtual wand workshop for wannabe witches and wizards of all ages — and Harry Potter-themed prizes up for grabs.
