Back to Hogwarts returns for a spellbinding celebration



Dust off your wizard hats and make your way to King's Cross Station.

Get your wands ready because the enchanting day is almost here. Back to Hogwarts is making an epic return and calling all Potterheads and muggles to join the celebration. Taking place on Friday, 1 September, this annual event brings together the wizarding community to commemorate the iconic moment when young witches and wizards board the Hogwarts Express at Platform 9 3/4, setting off on another year of magical adventures.

This day carries a special place in the hearts of Harry Potter fans. It's the day when young Harry, discovering his true identity as a wizard, stepped through a magical barrier at King's Cross Station into a realm of enchantment.

Like every year, a congregation of fans will gather at King's Cross Station in London, recreating the legendary scene where the Hogwarts Express departs for Hogwarts. The iconic countdown will be led by a lucky young winner, chosen through an exciting competition. To enter, all you need to do is submit a video counting down from ten to one which also gives you a chance to win a magical prize package.
