Harry Potter fans – “It’s just like Hogwarts!”
It has been 20 years since the release of the Harry Potter books written by J.K Rowling, and certainly for a generation of people it has done nothing but inspire. With tales of spells, witches & wizards, Quidditch and talking chocolate frogs, it’s clear to see why the premise of coming to see Bolton School for the first time has become rather exciting for people… hence the phrase ‘It’s just like Hogwarts!’
The Great Hall certainly has that ‘Hogwarts’ impact…. with it’s breath taking vaulted ceiling which is enough to leave that lasting impact for your guests to take home with them, it allows their mind to wand-er (pardon the pun) and conjure thoughts of Albus Dumbledore walking through the very same hall.
Alas no… whilst the headmaster of the school is extremely talented, there are some things he can not do such as making food appear! And just to clarify, chemistry is not potions; Biology is not Herbology and Physics is not Transfiguration! However, just because there are no spells, broomsticks, giant talking spiders (thankfully!) or dementors roaming the halls of Bolton School, this does not mean it is not a magical place!
The legacy which the series ‘Don’t tell the Bride’ has left for the weddings and events team has ensured that there will always be that connection between Bolton School Weddings and Harry Potter. The fantastic wedding which took place here almost five years ago has inspired couples to come and see the venue to see what the fuss is all about!
‘If only we could wave a magic wand and see the room set itself up!’ – Every team member at Bolton School!
Whilst there are no wands, cauldrons, house elves or invisibility cloaks at Bolton School, one thing for sure is that your guests will no doubt experience a magical day!
