Join fellow witches, wizards and creatures to mark the last day of winter and the start of a new school year at Hogwarts. Gather, feast, mingle, dance and just be magical. Follow us, along the path, up the stairs, across the threshold and into the grand dining hall where light dances and surprises await.
Take your seat. Raise your wands. It's time to live your dream...
The main event gets off to a siriusly magical start at 7pm. However, there is a equally magical but earlier and shorter ball for families and smaller witches, wizards and magical creatures (under 16) that starts at 3pm.
Although much of the entertainment will be the same as the later ball, activities and acts have been scaled to suit a younger audience and a shorter time-frame. Also, afternoon-tea-style food will be served in an effort to offer families a more affordable option.
EarlyOwl tickets are $165. Get yours soon! Discounts for groups of eight.
Tickets are $70 each (EarlyOwl price), special price for families.
All proceeds to The Smith Family's children's literacy program. How many $20 book packs for under-privileged children can we buy?
We're going all-out to create a magical themed dining hall befitting The Great Wizard's Ball and The Abbey at Gold Creek (Nicholls), with its enormous gothic organ taking centre stage, is the perfect venue.
Although most activities will be free, we ask you to consider making a gold coin donation for each. The Smith Family will also be running a raffle so you'll need to bring money for that.
You must be 16 years or older to attend The Great Wizards' Ball starting at 7pm and all minors MUST be accompanied by an adult. Minors WILL NOT be allowed entry to the ball without an accompanying adult. As alcohol will be served, proof of age may be required. The organisers are relying on adults to supervise minors to ensure the relevant laws, restrictions and licensing rules are respected and upheld.
All minors attending the earlier all-ages Great Wizards' Ball starting at 3pm MUST be accompanied by an adult. Note that alcohol will be available at the bar but we ask accompanying parents and carers to drink responsibly.
Numbers are limited and you don't want to miss out. This event may never be repeated! Get your EarlyOwl tickets before prices go up!
