SOLD OUT - Please see tickets for April Event.
The Bothwell School of Witchcraft is a place where you can finally live out your dream of becoming a real life student of magic. The story, characters, props and scenery will bring the school to life and leave you with an unforgettable experience!
The event runs much like a murder mystery. You'll be given a character to play and you'll create your own destiny, interacting with others and developing the story around your character. It's just just like being in a movie or video game! We'll provide the robes, so all you'll need is a wand and good humour. If you've never experienced anything like this before, don't worry. We cater for all backgrounds; you can get as much or as little involved as you like and we will have all you need to have a great time.
Bothwell School of Witchcraft is an all new addition to the College of Wizardry Universe based in the UK. This event is for over 18s only.
When: 10th-13th August 2018
Where: Herstmonceux Castle, East Sussex, UK.
WHAT HAPPENS AFTER I BUY A TICKET?
Much like a video game each participant will be given a character to play throughout the experience. Participants will be given a questionnaire which will help to determine what character they play. You may play a student or a professor. Students will be sorted into one of the four Bothwell houses. As a student, you may play a character between years one to three, or you may even be selected to become your house prefect. Professors will be selected to teach one of the subjects at Bothwell School of Witchcraft (note, Falconry will be taught by the castle's resident expert and is not a playable position). You can get involved as much or as little as you want. While parts of your character will be pre-written, you will be able to add more history and background and develop your character’s personality. You might want to sit back and just participate in the school, or perhaps you’d like to be prefect and lead your house to greatness. Everything is in the hands of the player, and how you choose to play is entirely up to you!
