There’s a BYOB ‘Harry Potter Paint Night’ happening in Dublin next month

Sarah Finnan

There are some things you can’t share without ending up liking each other.

Knocking out a twelve-foot mountain troll is one of them, partaking in a Harry Potter paint night is another. And of the two, the second is far less dangerous and far more fun.

Organised by Drink & Draw Ireland, the BYOB event takes place on Saturday, February 1st at 8pm.

Face the sorting hat upon arrival and see if the Instagram filters have prepared you for the real deal (*not Slytherin, not Slytherin*).

You’ll be assigned a seat according to which house you’re given – the hat has the ability to put friends together, or so I’m told.

Materials provided include a canvas, easel and paintbrushes as well as an instructor who will lead the two-hour event.

Throw on your dress robes for good measure as there will be prizes for the best costume, along with a face painter and various whacky wizard drinking games throughout the night. It’s BYOB so beverage choice is up to you.

Tickets for the Harry Potter paint night cost €26 plus a €2 booking fee, and you can get yours here.

It’s gonna be magical, I can sense it.
