Harry Potter Trivia Tournament and Codebusting!


The Harry Potter Trivia Tournament

It’s the twentieth anniversary of everyone’s favourite wizard Harry Potter this year, and publisher Bloomsbury chose Crediton Community Bookshop as one of just 20 bookshops around the country to host an official Harry Potter Trivia Tournament.

On Saturday 22nd July, ten teams of muggles had the chance to battle to become the supreme Harry Potter champions of Mid Devon. The winners were presented with copies of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone Illustrated Edition and a set of hardback House editions for each team member.

We had a family of winners and here they are with some of their prizes!

This winning team of Harry Potter Buffs will take a trip to London to compete in a second Trivia Tournament. This is to be held in October against the other 19 winning teams from around the country.

We look forward to following our team’s journey to London and supporting them in the next stage!

Information can also be found in our local newspaper.
