Knight Bus of Gallimard
The famous Knight Bus will be making its stop in the French capital for a day filled with activities and entertainment, games and goodies distribution (on a first come first served basis). Potterheads are also invited to come fully dressed in their favorite Harry Potter costume to benefit from the different photo booths available on the spot.
- Starting 31 August, the Knight Bus will be circulating around Paris in front of some of the most famous monuments. Some of the lucky Potterheads will surely be able to at least catch a glimpse of the famous bus before the official date.
- From 10am to 9pm on Sunday 1 September, the Knight Bus will embark at Port de la Tournelle.
Entry is free, and is on a first come first served basis:
- A device will be made available to visitors so that they can discover Wizarding World’s online store. There will also be hosts around ready to answer your questions regarding the products available.
- There will be 2 decorations installed inside the bus for photos
But that’s not all! You will even find more animations outside the bus!
Potterheads will find 3 photocalls for photos by (re)creating the most magical scenes: displaying your house pride with your house color, being in a wizarding duel and why not try out Wow! Stuff’s invisible cape.
Throughout the day, lucky Potterheads might receive various gifts offered by different partners.
They might even win tickets to Warner Bros. Studio Tour London. All they will have to do is to take photo(s) on the spot, and share it on social media with the hashtag #RetourÀPoudlard. There will be then a lucky draw on 3 September.
More details soon to be revealed on the event’s official Facebook page.
