About Us

The Harry Potter Society exists to bring together fans of the books and films through an array of exciting events!  Here's a peek into the goings-on of our society:


-- We usually meet on Wednesday nights (for exact locations and times, see the Upcoming Events section or check our facebook group), holding events that range from debate/discussion nights, game nights (think quodpot, wizard chess and wizard charades) to pub quizzes and craft nights (e.g. Christmas at the Weasleys'), making the society an excellent way to meet and chill together with fellow Potter fans!  


-- For more serious magical students, the pub quizzes will help prepare for the end-of-year OWLs and NEWTs


-- We host an annual Sorting Ceremony and Leaving Feast, and each year also host different large events (past events include the likes of the Yule ball, the Deathday Party, a ceilidh in the Chamber of Secrets and a Slug Club party).

-- In addition to the already fun meetings & events, our society also holds socials and trips (for example the past Hallowe'en Death Eater Pub Crawl, cinema trips, Christmas socials, outings/trips to various Harry Potter-related monuments) and welcome members to hang out outside of society business.

-- The Trip Away we try to make happen annually is a great chance to take a break from studies and to bond with other members, all while exploring more of Scotland! 


-- We helped organise Snow Ball, a wizard rock charity concert every few years. Bands and fans come from all over the world to watch or perform.

-- We have a  radio show - the Ministry of Magical Sound - Our radio show is not currently active but you can listen to old episodes on mixcloud.


Our society is very open and welcoming and on top of our obsession over the Harry Potter fandom it's not uncommon to find us also getting excited about and discussing other fandoms together. If you'd like to get involved with any of our activities, come to a meeting and find a commitee member, or contact us (see below).

So come grab a butterbeer with us for a bit of relaxation and lots of of nerding out!
