Nottingham Castle
Friday 29 – Sunday 31 October 2021

Coming to Nottingham Castle this Halloween! Black Knight Historical proudly present 'Abramelin's Academy of Arcana', an amazing and interactive School of Wizardry!

Abramelin of Thebes, wizard to Kings and Pharaohs, proudly presents his esoteric school [founded in 2160BC] for gifted and talented students in the arcane mysteries of wizardry and witchcraft.

Join wizard Abramelin and his mystical friends Morgana the Oracle, Melchizadek of Caerfyddin, Margot Henbane of Avignon, Devorguila of Geary, Nystul of Britannia, Estrella Darkmoor of Hurncastre and Fizban the Fabulous as they entertain, educate and fascinate in the oldest of the mysterious arts – Divination, Herbology, Arcane Wisdom, Dragonlore, Grimoires, Astrology, Pyromancy, Distillation, Potions, Druidry, Theology and Alchemy.

In three separate locations the wizards and witches of the Academy will entertain and amaze you with their wonderful magical displays, craft activities for kids, arcane knowledge and lavish costumes.

Children (and adults!) familiar with the wizarding world of Harry Potter will find this an extremely enjoyable experience. Visitors are encouraged to dress up and take photos/video!

And that’s not all, if you’re visiting on Sunday 31 October, It’s In Nottingham are bringing the official Ghostbusters car, Ecto-1, to the Gatehouse!
