There has been a huge amount of interest in DraigCon since it was first announced.
We've had people contacting us asking if we are building a full-size Hogwarts Castle or Diagon Alley. Sadly the answer is no, it is simply impossible to do this for one weekend, and since we are a fan event we can't use any copyrighted material belonging to Warner Brothers.
However, as you know, we are really excited to be using Chetham's Library as an additional location for the event. It is a medieval building and certainly looks the part of Hogwarts - it was even considered as a filming location! We really hope you fall in love with the place as much as we have done.
The Printworks is also very similar to Diagon Alley if you take the time to look up and around yourself at the architecture - it was designed to resemble a movie set. Once it is filled with magical market stalls and Harry Potter fans the atmosphere will be incredible.
We really hope that you will see the amount of effort and love that has gone into this event to make it much more than a regular convention. However, we do realise that for some visitors the hype and excitement have led to a few expecting much more than what we have advertised and is possible.
Finally, as convention-goers and Harry Potter fans ourselves, we believe that if you plan your day in advance and above all come with a good attitude… you will have a magical day… after all, the best part of any convention is the amazing attendees!
Magically Yours, DraigCon x
