There's a spooktacular Harry Potter screening happening in Wicklow next month

Harry Potter fans, it's time to Accio popcorn and settle in.

There's a very special screening of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix happening in Wicklow next month.


Yes, that's right: the folks at All About Events are bringing the Golden Trio's fifth year at Hogwarts to the incredible surroundings of Wicklow's historic gaol.

The event will take place on Saturday, November 9 - with an early and a late screening.

In case you need a refresher as to what Order of the Phoenix is about...

After returning to Hogwarts to begin his fifth year at Hogwarts, Harry Potter discovers that much of the wizarding world, including the Ministry of Magic, is in denial about Lord Voldemort's return.

The Order of the Phoenix, a group sworn against Voldemort, is using its vast array of wizards and witches magical abilities to combat Voldemort - but there's only so much they can do...

Meanwhile, Cornelius Fudge, Minister for Magic, suspects that Dumbledore is using these claims of The Dark Lord's return as a means to over-throw him as Minister.

And in retaliation, a new Defence Against the Dark Arts teacher is appointed by the Ministry in order to keep an eye on Hogwarts.

This new teacher, Professor Umbridge, implies strict new teachings and rules. So Harry sets out, with Ron and Hermione, to start up the D.A, Dumbledore's Army to battle evil forces and prepare the fellow young witches and wizards for the extraordinary journey that lies ahead.


Tickets to Harry Potter at Wicklow Gaol cost €15.50 per person (plus booking fee) or you can get a family ticket - for a family of four - for €55 (plus booking fee).
