On Saturday, I went somewhere magical.

At Kirstall Abbey in Leeds, there was a showing of Harry Potter & the Dealthy Hallows part 2.

I’ve never been to an outdoor cinema before so I was curious and excited.

I’m a massive Harry Potter fan and the event, hosted by Sneaky Experience, seemed so much fun. It wasn’t just a showing of the film, but before there were magic shows, potion classes, fire eaters, food and drinks at the Sneaky Caldron.

I went with fellow bloggers Hayley, Sharon, her husband, and her friend who has just started blogging, Cindy.

OF COURSE I DRESSED UP. Like a school girl. I know that I’m almost 30 but I DO NOT CARE.

Here’s pictures of me not caring:

When we went into the grounds of Kirstall Abbey, we were greeted with characters from the movies and there was even live owls there!

We wonder over to the Sneaky Cauldron for a drink, where I ordered a Love Potion which was prosecco, cranberry and some blue sparkly bits in it.

I was over excited when I saw the floating candles. It was a bit embarrassing. Doom.

After having fun times in the grounds, we went and sat down.

It was such an amazing place to watch it, very fitting to the film and they made the atmosphere pretty amazing.

It was a fun night and I really suffered the next day with a hangover. Wine is terrible. I’m never drinking again.



  1. What a superb event you look brilliant glad you endorsed your inner child. Looks like you had fun Lucy x

  2. This is so cool! I love your outfit, especially the robe, very cool. The castle grounds look amazing too. I’ve never been to an outside cinema, but I can imagine it’s brilliant. – Tasha

  6. That looks like SO MUCH FUN!! It’s so awesome that you live near to some of the places where the movies were filmed. And speaking of Harry Potter, have to been to the Wizarding World of HP at Universal Studios in Florida? If not, I highly recommend it. It’s amazing!

  7. Now this is the way to do outdoor cinema! Looks like you and your friends had a blast!

  8. That is such a lovely experience, Corinne and you look good in your wizard outfit. And we all say the same thing when we suffer a hangover, we’ll never drink again and usually that ‘vow’ will last me a week or two before my next zippy. LOL!

  10. OMG I would have loved this! So jealous of you guys. Looks like you had an amazing time though! Hope the hangover wasn’t too awful haha!

  11. Ahh how much I wish I was there, it looks brilliant! I’ve never been to an outdoor cinema either, they really need to do more things like this! It would be great especially over the summer, and I love how everything was themed out for the movie!
