Harry Potter Larpers Want To Buy Their Own “Hogwarts” Castle

Back in November we told you about the College of Wizardry, a live action role playing group of almost 200 members that pose as students, staff, ghosts and creatures of the Harry Potter Universe.

Unfortunately, the group has made an agreement with Warner Bros. to detach itself from the Harry Potter universe in future events, but they still want to hold epic larps in a setting that is inspired by the books.

The group currently rents out a castle in Poland but has recently set up an Indiegogo campaign to raise enough funds for future larps and maybe even the $1 million they need to buy and renovate this unbelievable castle in Poland as a permanent home base. It’s an ambitious goal, but imagine taking dark arts classes generic wizarding classes in an actual castle? Walking through those corridors for a 4 day long LARP event set in the most magical themed universe in existence might be the most exiting weekend of your life!

College of Wizardry explains what members can expect in the future:

“Here, long-flowing robes and dragontooth wands meet jeans and leather jackets. Magical theory is taught in old castles to students at home on iPhones, and while some wizarding families proudly trace their lineage back to famous magicians such as Morgana le Fey or the Oracles of Delphi, there are powerful sorcerers popping up in suburban Chicago and downtown Shanghai.”
