Guests convene at Potter's Lounge and will be escorted to the private performance venue at showtime. The performance lasts approximately 75 minutes.
The Magic Parlour is open to guests aged 10 and up, though we request at least one adult accompany each four children.
Cocktail attire is encouraged for all guests attending this magical night.
Tickets $75 per guest, wine and beer included
