British Council to host Harry Potter Festival
A daylong festival to celebrate the 20th birthday of the famous Harry Potter series will be held on Sunday at the British Council in the capital. British Council Bangladesh (BC) will host the festival which will be held at five public libraries. This event is part of British Council's project collaboration with public libraries “Libraries Unlimited.” The festival will feature an art competition, a magic show by Jewel Aich, panel discussion, a treasure hunt, quizzes and games, wizards classroom, and a magic potion classroom. It will also include an exhibition titled “Diagon Alley: Exhibition of Harry Potter props.” Harry Potter is a series of fantasy novels written by British author J K Rowling. Twenty years, on June, 26, 2017, Bloomsbury published the first book from the series, “Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone.” The series has been translated into 67 languages while all seven books have been released in unabridged audio book versions, with Stephen Fry reading the UK editions and Jim Dale voicing the series for the American editions. Online registration will be needed to get the entry pass in the festival. Interested individuals should register from here: http://bit.ly/harrypotterfestival.
