Harry Potter exhibition in Huddersfield
Harry Potter: A History of Magic is coming to Huddersfield this Autumn!
What will the exhibition include?
We’ll have a display showing images of rare books, manuscripts and magical objects from the British Library’s exhibition in London, as well as Kirklees treasures. You’ll also get a chance to see copies of original drafts and drawings by J.K. Rowling and illustrator Jim Kay.
When is it?
The exhibition will be in Huddersfield from 20th October until the 23rd December. It’s in partnership with the British Library, in celebration of the 20th anniversary of the publication of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s stone.
