With Harry Potter and the Cursed Child coming to the The Palace Theatre in just a few days, it’s time to for Potter fans to get excited about London’s return to wizard mania.
Even if you don’t bag tickets to the show, you can still get your Potter fix by heading to a new exhibition of the graphic art from the Harry Potter films on Greek Street from June 3.
Held in a suitably spindly house in Soho, it celebrates the work design studio MinaLima did for the movies – from designing Marauder’s Map to making up covers for the The Daily Prophet.
The Harry Potter section of the exhibition runs through three rooms. The first displays graphic prints of products designed for the Weasley twin’s joke shop.
The room showcases the original Marauder’s Map from the movie as well as a having a huge version printed on the floor.
The second room is called ‘the library’ and showcases the book cover designs made for the films, like 'When Muggles Attack'.
The final room features a printing press as well as numerous copies of the Daily Prophet.
While this is only a very small Potter experience, it’s a chance to check out fun details you’d never have spotted in the films – like this ‘Witch Watchers’ offer in the Prophet. Plus, you can buy prints and gifts in the shop downstairs.
The Graphic Art of the Harry Potter Films opens on June 3 at the House of Minalima, 26 Greek Street.
