The two four-day events are being staged at Czocha Castle in Lower Silesia in April 2015, with the fortress doubling for J.K. Rowling's Hogwarts.

“It's essentially the same as when kids use curtains as robes and sticks as wands and run around pretending to be witches and wizards - except we're grownups with nicer costumes and a lot of experience in designing interactive experiences for each other,” Polish company Liveform and Rollespilsfabrikken explains.

The April events follow on from the firm's first foray into Harry Potter territory last month. About 200 enthusiasts from around the globe attended the November shindig.

Classes for April's sessions include Defence Against the Dark Arts and Potions, complemented by the fabled game Quidditch.

J.K. Rowling's books and the movie spin-offs were huge successes in Poland. Polish crew were involved in the film series, with award-winning cinematographer Slawomir Idziak (Gattaca, Black Hawk Down), taking up camera duties on the fifth installment, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. (nh)
