We are about to start our first term on April 1st 2021. Until then students can enjoy their summer vacations with their friends and family. Wizarding Britain is ready to be explored. New students of any year my correspond with school librarian Rose Pemberton to continue their studies over the summer.

For the coming term we have just recruited a brand new professor of Arithmancy who will be teaching next term.

What's going on for Adults:

We are currently in the a year before the first wizarding war. Lord Voldemort and his Death Eaters are rising in popularity and bloodist sentiment is sweeping through the Wizarding World. Of course, not everybody agrees with with Lord Voldemort and his politics. Albus Dumbledore is currently moving behind the scenes, looking for new members to join a secret organisation to oppose the Dark Lord: The Order of the Phoenix.

Global Events: Lammas


The English festival of Lammas has come to Godric's Hollow. Observed annually on the 1st of August the town is preparing for merry celebrations and is decorating with wheat wreaths, bushels and flowers. Make sure you pick up a traditional Lammas loaf at the market. This year, Mrs Addington's Bakery is offering them in the shape of owls.

Witches and wizards may use the Lammas bread for eating as well as protective purposes. Local spell books claim that if the lames bread is broken into four parts and to be placed at the four corners of a building, the place will benefit from a special ward for the year.

Our Irish- and Scottish-speaking characters may refer to this holiday as Lughnasadh.

What's going on for Students:

We are about to start our first term on April 1st 2021. Until then students can enjoy their summer vacations with their friends and family. Wizarding Britain is ready to be explored. Maybe, you fancy a thread buying your books and wands?

Students have new professors to look forward to this term. @M. B. Montgomery  and @Lucas Reywood have joined the staff teaching Defense Against the Dark Arts and Muggles Studies respectively.

What's going on for Adults:

London is being troubled by the Squib Marches. In fact, squibs all over the country are making a stand for increased rights. Firm opposition is encountered by purebloods and Dark Lord sympathisers. Some of the marches are resulting in open violence on the street, requiring aurors to step in.

Shop keepers in London may be boarding up shops or reinforce their wards to make sure their properties remain safe.

The Dark Lord continues to recruit for Death Eaters.
