About Wizard World Gathering

The Wizarding Worlds from around the globe gather together in Edinburgh for the first time ever! A celebration of magic and fantasy.

Still waiting on your acceptance letter?
You may be too old for school but you will never be too old for mischief - grab your wand, don your robe, and join in the ultimate wizard party.

The Wizard World Gathering is a brand new event that kicks off the 9th Edinburgh International Magic Festival. Enjoy a free cocktail and chocolate frog on arrival, indulge in delicious food and bespoke drinks, find a friend, lose a friend, dance and upgrade your broomstick as you wander between the great hall and intimate theatres.

There’ll be live magic shows from expert magicians R Paul Wilson, John Henry Blackwood and Kevin Quantum, a fantasy quiz to test your knowledge, DJ sets, and prizes for those in the best costumes. And of course, beware of surprises that we'll spring on you throughout the night.

Have a night off from reality and get lost in wonder. Be part of the first ever Wizard World Gathering. In the most magical city in the world.
