This is an entirely improvised adventure into the famous world of witchcraft and wizardry! Our witches and wizards will show a brand new story entirely made up on the night based on your suggestions. This pre-Christmas adventure will take you into the magical world of potions, spells and fantastical creatures!

Previous adventures have told magical tales of heists at Gringott’s bank, unionising dementors, hufflepuff horcruxes, naughty house elves, time travelling goblins, exploding hippogriffs, weird Welsh dragons and trolley witch conspiracies… Join us as we magic you to a corner of the wizarding world - forbidden and never seen before! No two adventures are the same. What will yours bring? And what name will you give ‘The Show That Must Not Be Named’?

Age guideline: 9+

  • I laughed my flip-flops off and went straight home to watch a proper Harry Potter film. It was good... but nowhere near as funny as The Show That Must Not Be Named.

  • Adam Buxton Rambles...

    Sun 7 Mar 2021

    Comedian Adam Buxton reads from his new book which incorporates rambles on topics including formative cultural influences of the 80s, confrontations on trains, boarding school trauma and David Bowie.
