Brightworths School of Magic

For Young Witches and Wizards

Do you have a young Witch or Wizard? Brightworth’s are opening their doors this Halloween to welcome a new class into their School of Magic.

Every day from the 21st – 28th October, Hedingham Castle will be host to budding Wizard’s and Witches who wish to enrol at Brightworth’s. The magical doors will open twice each day, morning 10.30am to 1pm and in the afternoon from 1.30pm to 4pm.

You will meet the Brightworth teachers to learn and take part in their specialist subjects; from Magic Wands to Potions and Enchanted Animals to Mystical Spells.

The entire event happens inside our Magical Academy, so no need to worry about the weather. Costumes are allowed, sorcery themed outfits encouraged! Brightworth’s Magic School is aimed at ages 3 to 14- but older kids and parents may just learn a spell or two too!

Magical Animals

Owls, toads, turtles and more!

Come and meet our very special animals and hear about what role they have to play in the wizarding world. Under supervision from our Wizards you will be able to hold and handle the creatures, want a spider in the palm of your hand? Or a Python on your shoulder? Just ask!

With talks happening throughout the day, explore the animals or wait for our resident Animal Handler to tell you about how Bert was turned into a Guinea Pig, or how we use the warts from toads in our potions.

Potions Workshop

Prof. Greenbottom's Famous Potions

With lots of safe potions to see, stir and conjure up, Greenbottoms class is always a favourite with our new Brightworth students.

Magic Wands

Your own custom magic wand

Every young witch or wizard needs a wand, join our teachers in creating your own special wand to suit your own magic style. Our wand masters are on hand to help you decorate them using glitter, feathers and more.

Once your wands are ready (or if you want to get straight to it) Swish and flick your wand as you learn to cast spells under the supervision of our brilliant spell masters.

Magic Class

Help Brightworth's best wizard with his spells

Come and watch one of Brightworth’s best teachers, and his bumbling assistant, demonstrate his magical skills. Sit and watch or if you are feeling magical join in with some spell practice of your own.

Little spell casters keep your eyes open, as there may be an unwelcome wizard in the class! Grab your wand and help our wizard’s send him away with a spell or two!
