Pottermore is heading to Orlando for A Celebration of Harry Potter later this month and we’ve got a few surprises in store…

A Celebration of Harry Potter is just around the corner and Pottermore has something very special planned for fans this year.

The third annual celebration of all things Potter kicks off on Friday 29 January, at Universal Orlando Resort, Florida. Actors Rupert Grint, Evanna Lynch, Katie Leung, Matthew Lewis and Bonnie Wright will be around to answer questions.

Graphic designers MinaLima, Harry Potter: The Exhibition and Warner Bros. Studio Tour London will all be there too, giving fans the chance to get a closer look at the costumes, artwork and props from the film series. Scholastic will be giving away copies of all seven Harry Potter books and the new illustrated edition of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, by artist Jim Kay.

There will be panel discussions, wand demos, film trivia challenges and loads more besides. If you’re coming along to the Celebration in person, be sure to pop down to the Pottermore booth with the free augmented reality app Blippar* downloaded to your smartphone or tablet. You never know what you might find...

Don’t worry if you can’t make it because all the big news from the weekend will be right here on Pottermore and on our Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram pages.
