When I think of Harry Potter, I think of magical moments and happy times but for some people, that's not the case.
These people purchased tickets to what was described as an “immersive dining experience” in a “magical world”, they never thought they would experience "hell".
The Wizard’s Dinner was held January 18 in St John’s Cathedral, Brisbane, and Harry Potter fans were stoked to be heading out for a night of magical entertainment, instead they got over packed tables, a very hot room that made you feel like fainting, a lack of food, not many decorations and church pillars obscured peoples view of the entertainment.
Many disappointed guests ended up demanding refunds.
The company who organised it has come out and said that it was only a “small amount of people” who made the complaints, the majority actually enjoyed it.
Thing is, this is not the first time the company has been bagged out, May last year, there was a similar event held at Sydney University’s MacLaurin Hall where muggles complained about cringe-worthy performances and tiny share plates of “cheap” and “horrible” food.
But below are some Instagram posts from the Melbourne event, and I have to say, it looks amazing!

The most fun weekend of work ever! Thank you to the wonderful and magical cast, crew & guests of @thewizardsbrunch for making me and my animal friends from @reptileencounters feel like part of the team. It was great to introduce everyone to Harriet the Barn Owl, Connor the Barking Owl, Victor the Victorian Carpet Python, Thor the Coastal Python and Tiny the Olive Python! #reptileencounters #wildlifeupclose #thewizardsbrunch #thewizardsbrunchanddinner #magicalcreatures #owlpost #harrypotter #gryffindor 🔸🔴⚡️🐍🦉🐍🦉🐍⚡️🔴🔸
So who is really in the wrong here? Most of us will never know.
Maybe I will just have to watch the movie over and over and dream about eating in the magical Great Hall at Hogwarts!
