Poland is bringing Harry Potter’s world of magic to its countryside, inviting future wizards and witches to enroll in its school of Witchcraft and Wizardry for fall 2016.

The new Witchcraft and Wizardry program at the College of Wizardry will be a four-day event at a castle in Czocha, Poland. The new semester follows the success of a recent fall event that took place last November. The Live Action Role Play (LARP) event is lead by Liveform and Rollespilsfabrikken, also of Poland. Nearly 200 students from 11 countries enrolled in classes like J.K. Rowling’s characters in her Harry Potter series. Students in robes learned to cast spells, played Quidditch and attended a magical ball.

The College’s 2016 spring events in April have sold out, but tickets are still available for Nov. 17 to 20, 2016. The price is 375 Euros to attend, which includes food and accommodations at the castle.
