Ballarat's Kryal Castle to host Harry Potter stars this October

The English actors who played the Weasley twins in the hit Harry Potter films will make a special appearance in Ballarat later this year.

James and Oliver Phelps (who starred as Fred and George Weasley in the franchise) will headline Kryal Castle's Wizard Activity Day on Sunday 11 October.

Presented by Wowza Entertainment as part of a month-long Australian tour, the Ballarat event will feature magical performances, a Q&A session, and meet and greets with photo opportunities.

According to the Kryal Castle website, ticketholders can "experience the thundering drama of the joust as brave knights and their magnificent mounts face each other in the Castle Arena. Wander through the twists and turns of the maze. Visit the archery range and try your hand, or step into the Wizard’s Workroom to marvel at the magical goings-on. Why not enhance the experience by dressing the part in your best magic-themed costume!".

The real-life twins – who are now aged 34 – starred in all eight of the iconic Harry Potter movies between 2001 and 2011.

Tickets for the Ballarat event start at $60 and can be purchased online at https://bit.ly/2Xd6lND
